Victoria Morton (b.1971) is a Glasgow-based artist whose work involves the use of painting, sound, found objects, garments and photography. Morton has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting and an MFA from Glasgow School of Art. Her work reflects upon historical painting and literature, while also considering notions of the everyday and alluding to the domestic through use of found household objects. Morton’s work has been exhibited in various institutions in the UK and abroad, including The Fruitmarket Gallery and Inverleith House, Edinburgh; Il Capricorno, Venice; Sadie Coles, London; Tramway and The Modern Institute, Glasgow. Her work is currently held in the collection of the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, Harper Mackay Architects and Designers in London, as well as in private collections in England, Denmark, Germany and the USA.
In 2016 Morton was selected to work with Dovecot on a rug commission for The Perse School’s newly built Performing Arts Centre, designed by architect Haworth Tompkins.
