BOUDICA

MORGAN HERRIN
Boudica

Boudica was queen of the British Iceni tribe, a Celtic tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.
Morgan Herrin creates works that refer to classical sculpture, often a Heroine which has endured some hardship, whether that's death by arrows, or the simple aging, evolving beauty of a lost statuette. Herrin uses as his primary medium standardized dimensional lumber-planed wood (2x4's) or in this case, found, aged lumber from a 100 plus year old building in Richmond, Virginia. His lastest two works have a rougher, weathered appearance and the qualities of a grittier realism, aligning perfectly with his current subject matter.
Herrin is an artist with an extensive background in wood crafting and carpentry that unites a deep understanding and appreciation of the properties and materiality of wood with a fascination for the human form. His works have utilized wood to mimic materials ranging from the hard surfaces of iron, copper, and bronze, to the more delicate and fragile organic shapes found in nature, from plant and moss forms to bone and skin.

Herrin earned a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002 and an MFA in Sculpture in 2005 from Ohio State University in Columbus OH. His work has been exhibited widely in solo and group shows in the United States, as well as art fairs with ADA Gallery in Miami and New York City. Herrin lives and works in Richmond, VA, and currently serves as an Adjunct Professor at the Virginia Commonwealth University.
