Morgan Alexander is the 2013–14 recipient of the Forward Arts Foundation’s Emerging Artist Award. His exhibition remembering, forgetting, and remembering again, at the Swan Coach House Gallery through May 30, proves why he justly deserves the honor.
Alexander brings a Japanese aesthetic to a Southerner’s respect for family and love of the land, joined with an Eastern influence in thought and practice. He creates shrines to things that once were while making something completely new.
