Morgan Stokes (b. 1990) is an Australian emerging artist. After a four month residency in Berlin in 2019 followed by a year long practice in Germany, 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 in order to challenge and explore identity, digital anxiety and the new, technology-centric human condition.
