Janet Morrow creates art that is conceptual in nature, utilizing whatever medium, or combination of media, is most appropriate to communicate the idea or insight.


Some of her work serves to comment on the idiosyncrasies of our culture. From these themes has emerged a series playing with cake imagery. Says Morrow, "We have a visceral reaction to the image of a cake that is celebratory in nature. When you tamper with that reaction by creating cakes from unexpected materials about which we have ambivalent feelings, interesting responses occur."

Other work examines themes of deafness, disability and otherness and what it means to occupy a non-normative body in a culture where normality is narrowly defined.

Morrow holds a BFA in theatre from SMU and an MFA in Intermedia Studio from the University of Texas at Arlington. Her work has been exhibited at Surface Gallery in Nottingham, England, Access Gallery in Austin, The Smithsonian International Gallery in Washington, D.C., Circle Gallery at The Maryland Foundation of Art in Annapolis, Maryland, Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, The Long Beach Island Foundation in Loveladies, New Jersey, Altered Esthetics Gallery in Minneapolis and many other venues. She serves as a Lecturer at The University of Texas at Arlington and Tarrant County College Northeast Campus.
