Willow Murphy - Beginnings
Private Appointments Sun & Mon - Contact to Book
Beginnings comprises a body of painting and drawing that reflect an intersection of beginnings in the artist's life. Some new, some familiar, some changed. All colourful and rich and full of influences from Murphy's arts heroes like Matisse, Thiebaud, Anderson, Chagall, & Hockney.
The show merges a collection of explosively colourful series, weaving influence, perspective and experience. Each subject cluster reflecting an amalgam of beginnings: excitement and rediscovery of a world returning to and seizing life. A momentous career shift, seeing Murphy become a full-time artist. And most excitingly, the birth of her child a few days prior to the exhibition's launch. Turning mundane scenes of home and city life fantastic, through a bright lens of positive intent.
