Biography

Nationality Scottish
Birth place Glasgow

Morton studied at Glasgow School of Art. She is primarily a painter, but has also incorporated sculpture and video into her art. Morton's paintings are influenced by fashion, art history and experimental musical composition: she plays in a band and also co-founded the performance and installation group 'Elizabeth Go'. In her large, abstract canvases, the artist aims to involve the viewer as much as possible by creating a mind-expanding and overwhelming expanse of pictorial space. Morton's exhibitions include SLEEP LINE, The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2021), Pedal Point, Sadie Coles HQ, London (2021), Fieldwork, 42 Carlton Place, Glasgow (2020) and From Pablo Picasso to Robert Rauschenberg, Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, Germany (2017). The artist lives and works in Glasgow.
