Frankie Morgan

born in Sydney, Australia, she lives and works in Sydney and Berlin. She studied at National Art School, Sydney. Frankie Morgan digs into the familiar and mundane in order to question our ideas of beauty. Morgan charts the urban forces of change; earthmovers, public works, garbage bins and the people who live and work in the city. She is inspired by cities as sites of human innovation but also as the source of invisible forces exerted upon humans in daily urban life. Morgan’s recurring motif of the earthmover excavates both the urban world and the canvas as an artist’s work site. A site in which to dig deep into the experience of existence.
