Collection: Morgan Wedderspoon
Morgan Wedderspoon (she/her) is an artist working in print media and found-object sculpture, including collaborative projects, artist books and print-based installations. Her ongoing creative research explores the uneasiness and hopefulness of living in the ruins of late capitalism and the possibilities for collective transformation in the face of climate breakdown.
Wedderspoon earned an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Alberta in 2016 and a BFA Honours degree from Queen's University in 2009. Recent solo exhibition sites include the John & Maggie Mitchell Art Gallery, MacEwan University (Edmonton), Open Studio (Toronto), and SNAP Gallery (Edmonton). Wedderspoon currently lives in Ohròn:wakon/Hamilton, ON.
Her recent cyanotype photograms are spontaneous works made in the alleyway behind her home during a period of social isolation in spring and summer 2021. Using available materials and sunlight to fix iron to paper in the cyanotype process, Wedderspoon creates one-of-a-kind images at real life scale. The playful assemblages hint at the collaborations and caring relationships required to create livable futures.
