Quote of the day: Rebecca Morgan

�When I’m in the country, I feel as if I’m missing out. When I’m in the city, all I want is to escape.”
–Rebecca Morgan (via NYARTS)

Summer is almost here. Check out “Cabin Fever,” Rebecca Morgan’s hilarious take on country life at Asya Geisberg, through May 26, 2012. A native of rural Appalachia who studied at Pratt, Morgan’s hyper-realist style fuses Dutch portrait painting of masters like Roger van der Weyden and Jan van Eyck, with the titillating caricatures of R. Crumb.

  1. Though skills are evident, these works are yucky.

  2. Sharon, you're a CT nutmegger with a new studio in Bushwick; do you find yourself tilting from one end of that quote more than the other, or are you a one-person game of see-saw?

  3. Yes, Derrick, you're right–but somehow, like Rebecca, I need both 🙂

  4. I want both, but if i can only have one, i'll take the country.

  5. Hey, You have awesome skills.I would love to see those paintings again and again.And i want to see your previous paintings..

  6. I am impressed by the feelings evoked in Rebecca's art, especially the courage she shows.
