Leslie Morgan: Glow-in-the-dark Humpback Whale

Leslie Morgan: Glow-in-the-dark Humpback Whale


As a kid, Leslie Morgan dreamed of tropical islands, pirate boats and sea creatures. The public pool served as her primary mode of escape and a therapy for childhood asthma. Diving into the water then was the birth of a lifetime obsession and joy with aquatic experiences. Her memories of the waters in the Keys and Northern California serve as undercurrents to the concepts in her work. She explores ideas tied to nostalgia, female icons, and boat captaining, as well as to the environment, preservation of our oceans, consumerism and repurposing materials.
