ART BREAKDOWN: JENNY MORGAN’S HOW TO FIND A GHOST

What You Need to Know: Jenny Morgan is a New York based artist whose new solo show How To Find A Ghost explores the “invisible lives within and around us”.

The Skinny: Morgan wants you to see not only the physical part of her subjects but the spiritual. She’s exploring this further within the shows large scale paintings that allow for that eerie illusion at portraying both of those underlying entities. Captured in this stillness there seem like truth trying to scream out . It’s what makes them so unsettling, that she can both obscure and reveal the physical self and the spiritual merely by blurring their features. Those things occupying the same space at the same time in her paintings give the impression that neither Morgan nor her subjects have it all figured out in a morose, yet beautifully poetic way.
