Donald Morgan’s work is deceivingly complex. Impeccably built and finished sculptures pose a compendium of questions and narratives in conversation with texts.

The works touch on broad-brush humor and high-brow postmodernism. Morgan’s work has been shown widely including venues such as High Desert Test Sites in Joshua Tree, California, the Green Gallery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; the Art Gym at Marylhurst University, Portland, Oregon; and Portland2016 Biennial of Contemporary Art at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, curated by Michelle Grabner. Morgan received his Master of Fine Arts from Art Center College of Design in 2001. He was an early member of Ditch Projects, an artist-run exhibition space in Springfield, Oregon.
