Asya Geisberg Gallery presents Rebecca Morgan: “Town and Country”. The artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery shows the extent of Morgan’s achievement in painting, with forays into printmaking and brass sculpture, new endeavors for the artist. With archly symbolic portraits and complex scenes, Morgan weaves a grand narrative of gendered subversion buttressed by broader societal scale. Morgan’s characters straddle both the timelessness of morality tales, and the specific moment that we find ourselves in - redefining gender relations and reviewing historical representations in works from John Hughes movies, to stylized exemplars like Rubens and Fragonard, to Norman Rockwell’s foundational Americana lore. While always emanating from a contemporary socio-political yet diaristic lens, Morgan’s works now chart a wider continuum of referents. Archetypal characters strain against their roles, undermine fabricated notions of romance, and confront the hollowness and fear behind current masculinity, with both levity and tension.
