biography
Centered on themes of life, death and rebirth, Jenny Morgan’s works question how we relate to our past and challenge us to live in the present. Fusing figurative realism with graphic forms, her impeccably detailed images demonstrate an exceptional technique, while purposefully abstracting the human body—at times literally reducing it to its fundamental, skeletal structure. She renders these darkly charged and psychological works in intense hues, revealing a life-affirming immediacy and spontaneity. Deeply personal, yet thoroughly universal, Morgan’s works achieve a striking intensity, breaking through the ideals of traditional portraiture and the preciousness of realism.
 
Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions in New York, Colorado, Utah and Indiana; in numerous group exhibitions including the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. and the 92Y Tribeca, New York; and at galleries in Florida, England and Sweden. Her work is represented in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, Purdue University Art Gallery, University of Maryland’s Stamp Student Union Art Collection, as well as major private collections throughout the United States and abroad.
 
Morgan’s work has received critical attention in numerous publications including Juxtapoz, Whitewall, Hi-Fructose, The Village Voice, and The Denver Post. Her 2013 solo exhibition How To Find A Ghost at Driscoll Babcock Galleries was named one of the top 100 fall shows worldwide by Modern Painters. Her work has been the subject of three artist monographs, including Jenny Morgan: How To Find A Ghost (2013) authored by Benjamin Genocchio. Additionally, Morgan has realized several portraiture commissions for publications including The New York Times Magazine and New York Magazine.
 
Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Jenny Morgan currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds a BA from the Rocky Mountain College School of Design in Lakewood, Colorado and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. Jenny Morgan has been exclusively represented by Driscoll Babcock Galleries since 2012.
