About

Badlands, 2017
Oil on wood panel
37 x 50"

With each body of work Christopher Murphy weaves the conceptual with the representational, tackling complex images and ideas with exquisite detail. Among his imagery are full-length portraits of friends, hyper-real meticulously painted cityscapes of an ever-changing Brooklyn, and hybrid portraits of historical photos fused with personal memories. Concerned with duality, most of his work combines ideas, images and different styles of painting. The figures are often painted with thick paint, in an impasto style, juxtaposed against realistic and subtle backgrounds. Using photographs and memories to create images, Christopher Murphy makes his paintings resonate with each brushstroke, leaving long-lasting impressions on the viewer through his wit and skill.
