About Me

Why I'm on MM: I'm seeking new performers and models for my pieces. The ideal models for my work have intense personalities, improvisation skills, professional attitudes,  and workability. I'm also seeking new makeup artists and body painters for performances and photo shoots. While I screenprint on the skin of my models, more intense painting would be an incredible asset. Finally, I'm seeking talented and creative photographers to learn from, collaborate with, and invite to my performances.

Artist Statement:
Morgan Culture is wearable sculpture intended
for performance. Models interact with and even
touch the audience members, creating strong
reactions and discomfort for some while other
mesmerized audience members look on.

The endocrine system, the nervous system,
the visual cortex, and other internal arousal
mechanisms manifest outside the body. Veins
and bumps cover shiny surfaces. Materials
such as hand-printed fabrics, cast paper,
branches, printed skin, and undergarments lose
individual identity in a mobile visual cacophony.
These works are presented in any of the
following formats: runway, live performance, 3-
D mannequin display, photos, or video

Morgan, who received her MFA in 2009 from
Washington University in St. Louis, is known as
a prolific, collaborative, and entrepreneurial

Credit Notes

“…mad as a hatter.” –Judy Pfaff
“Gehris is giving form to… biological and social oxymorons….she gives these discoveries tangible form
as wearable art, making our standard sexual drives and deviations visible as gleaming accessories,
strutting gangions and neurons up on the catwalk…” – Dr. Christopher Parr
“…twisting neuronal representations branched out and reminded the viewer that the same brain-stuff is
in his or her head, too…. Gehris’ art brings us one step closer to appreciating all brands of sexuality.”
