John Mitchell interviews painter Heather Morgan on the occasion of her exhibition Heavenly Creatures at David & Schweitzer Contemporary, Bushwick, Brooklyn, on view through January 28th, 2018.

Morgan comments: "The figures I paint today still tend to be eccentric, fringe of society characters, larger than life... I get excited by raw displays of emotion, the intensity of expression of people I know, or perhaps someone I meet at a show whose face and gesture seem to carve right through a room."
