Morley, Spurgeonique

Spurgeonique Morley (born 1991, Nassau, The Bahamas) received her Bachelor in Art Education from The University of The Bahamas (2017) and is currently teaching at C.H. Reeves Junior High school.

Morley’s re-imagines the internet as a safe space to explore the feminine ego and sexuality by her blending her practice with the use of Instagram, selfies and GIFs. Her female figures are often touted with mysticism and lore – specifically mermaids – which elevates black beauty she captures by equating them with beings that often hold otherworldly powers.

With her work, she affirms the need for women to find solace in other women’s experiences.

Morley exhibited in ‘My Dreams, Aren’t Your Dreams’, The Island House (2017), and ‘The Likeness of Being’ (2019), The D’Aguilar Art Foundation.
