Sculptor Morgan Shimeld describes his work as minimalist geometric abstraction. The meaning behind his work is a complex amalgamation of philosophy, history and industry. His current series Passage aims to convey the metaphorical act of transformation, a symbolic rite of passage which pays homage to the notion of personal and collective experience. Morgan’s signature single-piece sculptures often feature angled channels cut through the form’s dense body, giving a sense of space within containment.
His sculptures incorporate cast, welded and fabricated bronze and steel, which undergo a highly technical process of addition and reduction of positive and negative space. Influenced by both modernist and ancient monolithic architecture, as well as Minimalism and Formalism, Morgan’s sculptures give a natural sense of balance, strength and elegance to his chosen material.
