Jennifer Morgan ‘Mexonoxian Meditations’
Join Carneal Simmons Contemporary Art for Jennifer Morgan’s opening reception for ‘Mesonoxian Meditations’ on February 18 from 5-8:30 PM. Emotion and energy are two things that Dallas-based artist, Jennifer Morgan, is not afraid to paint onto her canvas. She graduated from the University of North Texas where she focused on graphic design, art history, marketing, and painting. A full-time artist for 12 years, Morgan has been represented by galleries across the country and frequently works with designers, art collectors and enthusiasts. Some of her patrons include Neiman Marcus who has commissioned 16 paintings and The Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas that houses 86 of her paintings in their permanent collection. Her empowering vision and bold use of color and emotion bring life and inspiration to the art community of Dallas. Her exhibition continues through March 25, 2017.
Jennifer Morgan says, “I’ve always been drawn more to poetry than prose when writing my artist statements because that’s what the drive to create feels like for me. It’s rhythmic and it ebbs and flows. H.P Lovecraft captured it beautifully in this quote although for him, it’s about writing. ”
“At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour…”
– H.P. Lovecraft
‘Mesonoxian Meditations’ by Jennifer Morgan
I have a love affair with the middle of the night,
a magical one.
When the diurnal world is sleeping,
no one is knocking
no one is talking
no one is ringing
no one is dinging
I can hear myself think.
Alone with my thoughts and emotions.
To realize a vision.
To express myself.
