Olivia Tripp Morrow is an emerging artist whose work broadly examines gender, sexuality, beauty, and the body. For the last several years, Morrow’s work has been rooted in fiber-based installations that incorporate materials imbued with personal and cultural meaning. In January of 2020, Morrow’s body was surgically augmented to halt a progressive spine disorder, which brought the focus of her practice to the physical body: proprioception, pain, resilience. Her most recent works explore the abilities and limitations of her ‘new’ body through a wide variety of mediums, including embroidery, paint, charcoal, graphite, ceramic sculpture, performance, and video.
Morrow received her BFA in Sculpture at Syracuse University in 2012. She has exhibited her work in group exhibitions nationally and internationally, and in solo exhibitions in Washington, DC and Syracuse, NY. Morrow has installations on permanent loan at the National Institute of Health in North Bethesda, MD, and at the Arlington Art Center, where she is a current Resident Artist.
