Ciarán Murphy - this appear

Wed-Sat: 11-6pm

GRIMM is pleased to present this appear, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Irish artist Ciarán Murphy. this appear is Murphy’s ninth solo exhibition with GRIMM since 2007 and his first at the recently-opened London gallery.

The presentation follows Murphy’s recent touring institutional solo exhibition Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, on view throughout 2021 and 2022 across the Butler Gallery in Kilkenny, The Model in Sligo and most recently the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin (IE).

Ciarán Murphy’s paintings engage with the entanglement of technological and analogue modes of image-making. Negotiating an infinity of found images, Murphy splices together various source materials, allowing for chance encounters and incongruity to coalesce and collapse seemingly distinct subject matter into resolved compositions.
