About

Processed with VSCO with dog3 preset

Morgan Bak is a visual artist who bounced from Orange, CA to Colorado and landed in Seattle, WA. Her art works with repeating structures in the human form and the idiosyncrasies that define individuals. These themes come from an interest in “breaking people apart” and enhancing the flaws and quirks that set them apart from one another. Mannerism, distortion, and color become significant tools for enhancing these details.

My work can be seen at Sidestreet Arts in Portland, OR, Push/Pull in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WA, and at the Drift Collective of Portsmouth, NH.

  2. Really enjoyed looking at your page. Your art is arresting, slightly disturbing yet appealing. I’m not much of a judge, but think you are a very talented artist!
