KNICK KNACKS AND WHATNOTS
05/09/2019 to 10/10/2019
Cameron Morgan (b. 1965) lives and works in Scotland. He is a self-taught painter, muralist, ceramicist and photographer and a keen gardener and hillwalker. His work is narrative, bold and colourful, reflecting his interest in stylised form and comic likeness. This playful exhibition of print and ceramic pieces reflects everyday, material objects; those that are so familiar, we barely register them or their aesthetic qualities. He examines and enlarges these objects – from pencils to matchsticks, tape measurers to coins – prompting us to look anew at the tools of our daily life.
Cameron Morgan is based at Project Ability in Glasgow – a visual arts charity which creates opportunities for people with disabilities and people with mental health issues to express themselves and achieve their artistic potential. As part of Project Ability’s local and national partnership work, they create opportunities for people to network, share their practice and exhibit.
This exhibition has been developed in partnership with Project Ability for this year’s Bounce Festival and beyond.
About Atypical Gallery
Showcasing artwork by disabled and deaf artists since 1993, Atypical Gallery is the only permanent exhibition space on the island of Ireland dedicated specifically to highlighting the work of disabled and D/deaf artists. Atypical Gallery provides a welcoming, accessible environment for both emerging and established artists practising across the visual arts spectrum.
As well as providing an exciting and challenging programme of visual arts exhibitions, the gallery also serves as a forum for the education and discussion of disability-led art and culture. Beginning in 2018, Atypical Gallery will host a series of talks, screenings, readings and events around disability art, contemporary practice, socially engaged and participatory art, and disability-led art and curation.
Our aim is to broaden public perceptions of disabled and D/deaf art practice, to champion excellence in visual arts practice, and to support and encourage the professional development and acceptance of disabled and D/deaf artists in Northern Ireland.
