MORGAN'S ART

Welcome! This site offers Morgan's impression of Minoan paintings, exploring the language of narrative art.

In her work, Morgan has found Minoan art forms of the Bronze Age inspiring for exploring different ways of thinking. Between 1650 and 1400 BCE, an earthquake, followed by a volcanic eruption and subsequent tsunamis, ended the Minoan civilisation so that much of what we know about them today is from what was found preserved by ash in Santorini or from fragments buried under rubble in Crete. In Knossos, such items that were excavated by Sir Arthur Evans, helped reconstruct identifiable Minoan artwork. Though no one has yet established why such images decorated the interiors of homes and walls of public buildings, Morgan's theory is that the frescoes were created to learn from and can still teach us now!

‘I view them as pictorial metaphors that don't just show the Minoans had a great sense of gender equality but that their images were meant to have a strong and unconscious influence. Where language can fail to be understood, these pictures once helped structure the way people thought and acted and can still support modern language when words are not enough.'
