About the Artist - Morgan Elvington Walker (Melvin G)

Morgan Elvington Walker received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Clemson University. While studying abroad in Orvieto, Italy she obtained the nickname Melvin G. which comes from her first initial and part of her maiden name. The name stuck and became her signature on all of her work.  She currently lives in Florence, South Carolina with her husband, Michael, daughter, Liza and son, Ward.

All of my work focuses on control. It began while observing the stark contrast of my young daughter’s oblivion to her lack of control with my late father’s awareness of his declining penmanship due to Parkinson’s Disease. I began to emulate the intentionality of his tiny marks with the freeness of her large chaotic scribbles into my abstract work. There was a beautiful and natural balance in the two forming a unique paper background, which I then cut and formed into collages allowing me to apply a fresh form of control into each piece. With my current collage work the painted paper is a solid color, but I bring in the idea of control by the precision and careful movement I use when cutting and measuring all while keeping the collages colorful and childlike in their subject matter.
