“Jenny Morgan - Self Portrait” is the first video composition of the acclaimed young painter from New York City. Morgan discusses the more intimate details of several of her most compelling paintings of the last 4 years. Known for her exquisite and revealing self portraits as well as her interpretations of other people in her life, Morgan’s body of work redefines the genre of contemporary portraiture, making her one of the most exciting young artists in contemporary art today. Filmed in August, 2011 at the end of her summer residency in Denver, Colorado in conjunction with Plus Gallery.
