LIVES IN NJ/WORKS IN BROOKLYN
Donna Moran is a professor of Fine Art at Pratt Institute in
Brooklyn, N.Y. From 2001 to 2012
she chaired the Fine Arts Department overseeing both the BFA and MFA programs. Her
work has been widely exhibited in the US and abroad, including New York,
Australia, Brazil, Peru, Italy, and Spain. She was recently one of sixteen
invited international artists for Peru’s Taller 72’s book Mixtura. In 2014 she had a solo exhibition of her work, Configuration, Transformation and Assembly, Conversations with E. Vila-Matas and Cosi se Intende per Essere Successo at The OPUS Project Space in NYC. Her work is also included in the 2014 exhibition Process at the Denise Bibro Gallery, also in NYC.
Her new work is reflective of the physical damages created from recent storms, over-development of the coastal regions of the northeast and of her native mid-west. The work is a blend of landscape and architecture, digital and hand painted media.
Moran has been a Visiting Artist at The American Academy in Rome, and an artist in residence at The Vermont Studio Center, The Centre for Fine Print Research (UWE) in Bristol, England, and U Gratzie Ceramica in Deruta, Italy.
