Olivia Tripp Morrow is a multidisciplinary 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.
