Morgan Bukovec's work is rooted in community, connection, and storytelling.
In her practice, Morgan knows when a collage is complete when she sees a story unraveling before her eyes and there is an immediate sense of connection between materials. Each of the materials she uses are found, have an ephemeral quality, and hold a story of their own. Morgan's work is important to share because it connects to the human experience. Her works are filled with opportunities for viewers to look close at the materials used, examine the story that was delicately created, then reflect on one’s own memory, story, and moments of connection.
