Statement

A native of Los Angeles, Jennifer Gutierrez Morgan’s work echoes intersections of her dual existence as an artist of hybrid cultures and influence.  Her work is drawn from a range of thematic interpretations and sifts through layers of her daily experiences, both in Los Angeles and abroad.  Often exploring elements of cultural rituals, historically-based social and political matters of justice, and relations of the botanical to human presence, she utilizes various photographic techniques in combination with forms of printmaking and mixed media as her means of communication.  While her work may be found on paper, she also finds interest in printing on and utilizing various materials, ranging from muslin and nopales, to found windows and doors.   

Finding great influence from artists Graciela Iturbide, Elizabeth Catlett, and Nahum B. Zenil, Gutierrez Morgan similarly deals with parallel concepts and mediums, while constantly working to establish her own distinct voice.  Currently focusing on photo-generated serigraphs, she initiates the process of a piece with a photograph, thus working her way to a combination of a contrast-filled image printed with ink.  She finds this process rich for many reasons, however mainly due to its fundamental link to photography.  

Her other passion of building altars during the seasonal feast of Dia De Los Muertos is rooted in her deep fascination with, and personal connection to the art and culture of Mexico.   Discovering inspiration specifically in traditional folk art, textiles, and metalwork, Gutierrez Morgan’s altar installations reflect her interest in the relationship of object and space.  Her natural desire to search for objects which educate and exist as remnants of past lives and memory, allows for her conscious arrangement of object within environment.  Through such explorations of both interior and exterior realms, her work manifests as curious projections, sensitive to the duality of our existence.  

She has participated and exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout L.A. County and in New Orleans. From the Museum of Latin American Art (Molaa) and the Pico House Gallery @ El Pueblo Historical Monument, to Cactus Gallery and Los Angeles City Hall, her work has been published and remains in several collections.
