Benjamin Murphy - Iconoclasm

Thu-Sat: 12-6pm

UNION Gallery is pleased to present Benjamin Murphy’s solo exhibition, Iconoclasm, with his latest works produced between his Helsinki and London studios.

The exhibition showcases a bold and daring approach to making. The British artist embraces the unpredictable and often uncontrollable aspects of creation through the medium of charcoal on raw canvas. The key element of Murphy's process is his use of the unforgiving medium. Once a mark is made, it cannot be erased, which leads to a constant exploration of the medium's chaotic nature.

Dali attached “Vivante”, implying action and life, in doing so he introduces, movement, the life within dead nature. Here we question the nature of the works in the exhibition, the vitality of them, and the mortality.
