Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to present “With Reverence”, the debut solo exhibition of Melissa Morgan. This new series of portraits has an environmental inspiration, as the artist explains, “My latest body of work is a reflection of my concern about the decimation of the natural world and our precarious connection to it.” Utilizing expert and traditional painting skills, each portrait depicts the deep symbolism of our environmental impact through non-traditional surrealistic subject manner. While somber in theme, the artist does not present the topic with catastrophic intention but “these pieces, while expressing my fears and concerns with the topic, also carry a message of hope for change.”
