Lander University in Greenwood, SC, Offers Works by Carey Morton

Lander University in Greenwood, SC, is presenting Primordium, a solo exhibit by Carey Morton in the Lander University Gallery, located in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center, on view through Feb. 17, 2014.

An emerging artist from SC, Morton attained his BFA from Winthrop University concentrating in sculpture and drawing. There, he was also awarded the Winthrop Arts Highest Achievement Award for a body of sculptural work.

Morton’s work focuses on “the constant shifting balance of man’s relationship to nature, and each individual’s sense of self”. His work incorporates concepts of life and death, rebirth and growth, and often has an undercurrent of social and political issues.

Of this exhibit, Morton says, “My most recent series of sculptures and drawings has been centered on combining and contrasting symbols and archetypes, that through my own research I have found to be deeply rooted in the genetic memory of all beings.

These ideas coupled with modern concepts and relativism, are illustrated through the use of natural materials, found objects, and original fabricated forms ranging from steel to latex. The pieces become a visual language, transcending cultural barriers and demanding reflective thought.”
