About

Gestural abstract painting on paper in shades of green with accents of ochre, orange, and light yellow Enamel paint on paper 28 x 22 inches unframed Signed, bottom right This gestural abstract painting on paper was made by Hudson Valley based artist, Bruce Murphy, in 2019. The painting was created with multiple layers of enamel paint that were spread across the paper to reveal interesting color combinations. One can see the artist made gestural strokes with a palette knife to unearth accent layers of ochre, orange, and light yellow under the green enamel paint. The work is currently unframed and signed in the lower right corner. About the work: Texas native Bruce Murphy brings us a new series of paintings using his preferred materials of enamel paint and various metallic powders. Over the years, we have seen Murphy’s abstract color compositions take on characteristics of landscapes where horizon lines distinctly separate land from sky in minimalist blocks of color. In the new work, Murphy introduces a grid work of straight, measured lines that pierce through the expansive color schemes with the implied specificity of an Agnes Martin. Diaphanous clouds of color are layered within veils of gold and silver metallic powders. A true master of this medium, the artist’s deft application results in a suavely knitted fabric of shimmering light that not only reflects but also emits from, through and behind the nebula of color. Murphy invents a universe on a two dimensional plane where his marks and incisions become points in the cosmos. Bruce Murphy obtained a BFA in painting from the Parson’s School of Design in New York City. After a long career in graphic design, he now lives in Rhinecliff, NY and devotes himself full-time to his art.
