Biography

Born 1971
Nationality Scottish
Birth place Glasgow

Morton was born in Glasgow and 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. Recent exhibitions include Devils in the Making, GoMA, Glasgow (2015); The Modern Institute, Glasgow (2014); Mouth Wave, Rat Hole Gallery, Tokyo (2014) and Tapestry (Radio On), Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, USA (2012). Morton lives and works in Glasgow.
