Claire morgan

Claire Morgan was born in Belfast in 1980. She graduated from Northumbria University in 2003 with a first class honours degree in Sculpture and is now based in London. Claire has exhibited internationally, with solo and group shows in UK and Europe, and museum shows in US and Australia.
laire won two awards in 2004 from the Royal British Society of Sculptors for Come Fly With Me, a work that involved painstakingly repetitive and precise processes. She has continued to explore this way of working, and the challenges presented by her chosen materials and techniques have become an integral part of her practice. Red or Dead, a sculpture made of thousands of cherries, caught the attention of the judges of the Premio Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, International Competition for Young Sculptors, Milan (2006) where Claire was awarded the first prize of Eur10,000. During this period Claire was also shortlisted or selected for a number of smaller awards.

In 2008 The Fall, Claire's first solo outing in London was well-received, and other solo exhibitions outside the capital - Periphery (UCA Farnham) and Gone With The Wind (The Laing Gallery, Newcastle) featured ambitious new works on a large scale. At the same time, drawing was becoming a more important part of Claire's practice. EChO Wanted was the first exhibition where sculptures and drawings were shown together. It was also the first time that Claire worked with Galerie Karsten Greve.

Following sculptures at Palais de Tokyo (Fluid) and Fiac (Striking) Claire unveiled her first solo exhibition in France. Life. Blood., at Galerie Karsten Greve, Paris, received national news coverage in France, with private collectors acquiring most of the works on the opening night.
This was the first time Claire exhibited the 'blood drawings' that have rapidly become her signature. Paper is used to make touch drawings and collect the residues of the taxidermy process, before very detailed, intricate drawings in watercolour and pencil are added, including representations of the animals whose blood has been spilled on the page.

2010 exhibitions included Dead Or Alive, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and on&on, La Casa Encendida, Madrid, where 12 international artists made ephemeral installations that changed over the course of the two-month show. By the end of the exhibition Claire's work Down Time involved over 8,000 strawberries illustrating every stage in the process of decay.

Two exhibitions opened in January 2011: Under The Sun, a solo exhibition at Galerie Karsten Greve, Cologne, and Monanism, the inaugural exhibition at the Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania.

Installations and drawings are in numerous private collections in the UK, Europe and Australia, including MONA, Tasmania.

Leave behind you the freedom
if you do not know
can tear your flesh
does not make you feel
do not get caught
run while you can ..
