Morgan Stokes (b. 1990) is an artist from Sydney, Australia. With a background in object and graphic design, a sense of form and space inform his current oil painting practice. After a four month residency in Berlin followed by a year long practice in Germany in 2019, he is now located back in Sydney. Stokes holds a Master of Design from the University of New South Wales.
Understanding the internet as a place where past and future coexist in the present, Stokes’ works draw from our fraught relationship with technology, juxtaposing the nascent visual language of digital screens with the tradition of oil painting. Stokes fragments and blends forms and ideas to challenge and explore identity, digital anxiety and the new, technology-centric human condition.
