Catherine Morgan’s work exacerbates the boundaries of language. With the bold typography of each piece, viewers are pushed to mentally disrupt their habitual processes of interpreting textual matter. Not so much a breakdown as a breakthrough, letters are cleanly reduced to newly formed optical tools in which to reflect on the nature of communication itself. Morgan’s work particularly draws influence from the renowned practice of concrete poetry, where the visual arrangement of text supersedes the verbal. Within this mode of working, Morgan experiments with printing techniques and carefully chosen colour, in order to develop compellingly layered abstract pieces.
