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.
