I have an empathy with my favourite wood ~ Australian Red Cedar which to me has the best of qualities, it is truly beautiful, full of life and potential, soft and responsive yet strong and enduring.
Previously I was known for painting portraits, abstracts and landscapes, but I switched to sculpting after a summer school with sculptor Bert Fugleman in 1985.
I was trained by Melbourne artists Amby Dyson, Vic O'Conner and Noel Counihan - all friends of my late father Frank W Morgan, an established artist and recognised member of the George Bell School.
My wife, Liz Challis and I live near Bellingen on the North Coast of NSW or in the South of France in Cevennes town of Le Vigan.
Leigh Morgan's sculptures are represented in collections in England, France, USA, Russia, Germany, Japan and in the
Australian states of NSW, Qld, WA, SA & Tas. (For those living in Sydney, check out the two in the windiw of the new Ralph Lauren store in Pitt St. on the corner of King Street.)
The sculptures and the paintings of Liz Challis are currently on exhibition at the Intertwined Gallery nesar Bellingen at 96 Old Pacific Highway Raleigh NSW.
Some sculptures can also be purchased through the Saatchi Gallery, Chealsea London
Sculptures~(many more will be added over the coming week)
