Artist Bio

Morgan McGill is a working artist from Louisville, Kentucky. She graduated from the University of Louisville with her BFA in Painting and Drawing and has since called herself a “Collage Artist.” In 2017 she attended the University of the Basque Country in Spain where she studied contemporary and historical drawing and painting, co-organized her first group exhibition, and grew more fluent in Spanish. McGill finds the purity culture she grew up in fascinating as a complex cultural movement in U.S. Christianity. She questions and critiques these religiously institutionalized ideas about the roles of women through her mixed media 2D art.
