Morgan Rosskopf is a visual artist living and working in Portland, OR. Her work meditates on love and and its many opposites. Believing that truth and meaning lie in nuance, she overwhelms her drawings with information, hoping for revelation in chaos. She is interested in how the complexity of emotion and the power of dissonance shape our mental landscapes, like mountains and valleys formed through years of external pressures. She is interested in how we live by the metaphors we create.
Rosskopf received her MFA in Fine Art from the University of Oregon in 2013 and her BFA in Printmaking from Sonoma State University in 2010. Exhibiting in group shows internationally in Tokyo, Japan (2015) and throughout The United States, selected exhibitions include; How to Melt at Jailhouse Studios in Portland, OR (2018); Out of Sight in Seattle, WA (2016, 2017); We Just Want to Make Things at Whitadel Arts Gallery in Detroit, MI (2014); as well as Speaking Between at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center in Portland,OR (2013). Rosskopf had her first solo exhibition, HEAVY POP, at One Grand Gallery in Portland, OR (2016). Her first international solo exhibition, Let Me Love and Steal, opens November 10th, 2018 at Galerie Stephanie in Manila, PI.
Alongside her rigorous studio practice, Morgan works as a floral designer, further entangling art and life. She has received multiple grants from the Oregon Arts Commission, co-founded and served as Creative Director of Colibri, and taught illustration courses at PNCA.
