Born in New York and raised in New Mexico, Cole Morgan studied English literature, art history and drawing in the United States before setting out for Europe in the 1970s to see the Old Masters. His early works are hyperrealistic pencil drawings, but in the mid-1980s he began working in a non-figurative style. Nonetheless, his abstract works still contain elements of photorealism, such as shadow effects. Defined by colour, form and light, Morgan's works are modern trompe-l’oeils, with shapes that appear to hover and depth suggested by painted shadows, sometimes combined with actual raised relief.
