Studio Visit with artist-in-residence Matt Murphy
We had a chance to look at the drawings, mixed-media work, and paper sculptures created by current artist-in-residence Matt Murphy.
Matt Murphy is a painter living and working in Boston, MA. His work seeks to draw out kinesthetic relationships between shapes and the spaces they inhabit. Working with shaped canvases these paintings are often free from the constraints of the traditional picture plane, however these abstract fictions come up against the realness of architecture as they attempt to create a world of their own.
Murphy has shown nationally in the U.S.. He has a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from the University of Washington in Seattle. He currently teaches painting and foundations at Montserrat College of Art.

Inspriation from artist-in-residence Gabriel Feld
As artist-in-residence at the Siena Art Institute, Gabriel Feld has been inspired by the cultural and material context of the city of Siena, and in response developed a series of experimental works-on-paper.
The “Sienese Diary” that these works compose does not represent a finished body of works, but, as suggested by Feld’s choice of the term “diary,” an open and continuous reflection that passes through the visual medium.
Group brainstorming: mid-term project works-in-progress
Group brainstorming today for mid-term project works-in-progress at the Siena Art Institute.
