The most recent edition of New American Paintings (#92) has a few sweet surprises inside. One of which is the artwork of Colette Murphy. Based out of Brooklyn, Murphy described that her paintings stem “from inner dialogue regarding politics, social criticism and fantasy. Images emerge from a place where the conscious self cannot process.” The invented space and the combination of paint, graphite, and raw linen draw you into this world of creation, leaving you asking for more. I love finding artists that subtly address current events, using tact to take life and death into the balance.
