Lia Dewey Morgan

With a background in printmaking and photography, Lia Dewey Morgan makes art that investigates the codependency of humanity and technology, opening up conversations about how to process the fast-changing world we inhabit. Regarding herself as an object in time and place allows a strong synergy with the objects she affects in her role as an artist. Awareness is key to her practice, whether observing the world at a distance or being saturated in the experience of being human. Certain catastrophic events, such as 9/11, point to a paradigmatic shift, a collective existential crisis questioning what it means to be alive today. How do we manage the pervasive nature of trauma, both cultural and personal? Morgan’s work seeks to reflect our world back to us, from a state of calm, establishing an equanimitous means by which to bear witness to this era of overwhelming progress.
