Artist Research #6

Claire Morgan's work is really graceful. She says it is about our relationship with nature explored through change and the passing of time. She uses suspension to create a sort of a freeze-frame look that would capture a moment in time.

1.5m (w) x 1.5m (d) x height variable
Strawberries, taxidermied crow, fishing hooks, nylon

Dandelion seeds, a taxidermy heron, nylon, lead, acrylic
270 x 62 62 cm

Fall Out
Ginkgo leaves, 3 taxidermy canaries, nylon, lead, acrylic
98 x 98 x 150 cm

This artist's work is really appealing to me. I love how it flows and shows a definite sense of movement. Her pieces look really delicate and temporary, and the materials she uses, like dandelion seeds and leaves, are all naturally fragile things I wouldn't ever fathom using in a piece, but she makes it work. Her attention to detail and how things are placed is really great.
