Our featured artist today is Morgan Wedderspoon! Morgan specializes in printmaking of all different kinds. Many of her works utilize digital print techniques, and she creates print collages and assemblages of many small images.

Morgan’s works are strange constructions and deconstructions, often with everyday images or objects at their heart. Her Morphology gallery on her portfolio website compiles digital print images that seem to made of many tiny fragments of other images, swirling and swarming together to form shapes that are reminiscent of wasp’s nests, or cotton. The images themselves are too small to identify.

Her Swirl prints are similar, comprising assemblages or clusters of woodcut prints that all seem to have exact identities and yet aren’t really identifiable. This kind of imagination and obfuscation manifests also in Morgan’s Explorers series, which I personally adore – a collection of unseen figures wearing outlandish and alien suits, for space or underwater exploration.
