Statement

Amelia Morgan's work focuses on the human experience, drawing from her background in psychology and art. In 2005, she began a series of "body maps," using the body as terrain to map out episodic memories and emotions as landmarks, symbols and scars. Her current body of work explores the emotional and existential struggle that exists between body and mind.

In New York, she has been involved with Performa05, The HomeBase Projects (I-V), Makor Gallery and Paula Barr Chelsea. In addition to Artist-in-Residence Programs at the Makor/Steinhardt Center in 2006 and the 14 St. Y's LABA Program in 2008-09, she has exhibited at Makor Gallery, Broadway Gallery,  14 St. Y, the HomeBase Project IV, and SVA's Westside Gallery. She has been a member of the art collective SuperGlue since 2007. Amelia graduated from Scripps College with her Bachelor's in Psychology and Studio Art in 2005 and is currently pursuing a Master's In Art Therapy in NYC.
