Following on from the success of Cameron Morgan’s ceramic pieces from Project Ability’s ‘Food To Go’ exhibition in 2015, and his enormously popular Glasgow International exhibition of paintings titled, ‘TV Classics Part 1’, this latest exhibition combines these two ideas into one new concept. Morgan will be creating a series of slipcast ceramic phones which will highlight the extreme evolution of one of human kind’s greatest inventions to date.
The Unlimited commission awarded to Cameron Morgan in 2015 has given him the time and financial support to create ‘TV Classic Part 1’ for Glasgow International (touring to Wales and London as well, http://www.tvclassicspart1.co.uk/cameron-morgan/) and this new exhibition at the Tramway titled, Put your sweet lips closer to the phone.
Cameron has been working as an artist with Project Ability since 1991 and in this time he has gone from strength to strength with his studio practice, exhibitions and commissions. His creative energy knows no bounds and if there is a new art form to learn he will always volunteer to try it out. This will be his first time working with slipcasting, and we have enlisted the help of ceramicist Alan McEwan to mentor Morgan through the creation of this work.
Cameron’s first wide-reaching recognition came about in 2014 when he was selected as one of the 60 ‘Generation’ artists to represent ’25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland’. In May of 2016 this recognition was further enforced when Cameron was awarded a life time Fellowship to the RSA.
