Artist Morgan Hill’s formal art education began at Memphis College of Art where she focused in drawing. After a couple of years, her desire for design literacy led her to study interior and furniture design thus earning her a BFA in Furniture Design and Woodworking from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. After a year assisting Mia Hall and working as the Creative Director of the ESSE Purse Museum, she completed a two-year fellowship at Penland School of Crafts. Morgan has been included in exhibits at Asheville Art Museum, Southwest University of Visual Art, Alabama Center for Architecture, and numerous private collections.
Inspired by her upbringing in the South, television and film, and a longing to break the silence surrounding problematic subjects, Morgan’s work seeks to understand our censure around corporeal termination. Building narratives that leave the viewer orphaned in a mix of conflicted feelings, thoughts, and questions, her work brings deserved recognition to the topics of death and destruction.
