Janet Morton has exhibited extensively throughout Canada and abroad. She has received numerous awards and accolades for her work, that playfully and critically examines our relationship to the natural world and everyday objects.
Since 1992, Morton has used knitting and sewing symbolically in her work as blatant low-tech metaphors. By using stereotypically domestic techniques and recycled materials, Morton explores issues of consumption and how “value” is assigned to objects and time investment.
Morton lives and works in Guelph and is represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art in Toronto.
