POLLY MORGAN

 

POLLY IS WEARING THE NEUTRA DRESS

Polly Morgan is a British born artist who uses taxidermy to create works of art.

She moved to East London to read English Literature and later took up taxidermy when she began making sculptural work in 2004.

Having studied with Scottish taxidermist George Jamieson, Morgan began to play with and dismantle taxidermy traditions, creating sculptures that brought her work to the attention of many notable collectors and curators both in Britain and internationally.

On Catherine Quin

Because I love the simplicity of the design and the way it can be worn with flats or heels for glamour with minimal effort. Also I’m pregnant and I can imagine the loose fit will see me well through the pregnancy!

On inspiration

Others. I think it’s important to fraternise with those who are working and living in a way you aspire to in order to keep that end in sight. Having said that, my latest work has been about failure. To avoid regret, I wanted to turn bad luck/decisions into something more fruitful.

personal motto

Don’t just talk about it.

On LIVING LIFE by your own rules

I decided to employ myself at 23.

On OVERCOMING CHALLENGES TO GET WHERE YOU ARE

Lack of money and confidence have always been driving forces for me. Both have to be earned by hard work.
