About

Photo-realist fall foliage landscape painting of a calm pond in the Hudson River Valley under a grey-blue sky "We Fall Into Indifferent Ponds", painted by Eileen Murphy in 2018 16 x 16 x 1 inches, oil on panel Signed verso This contemporary, photo-realist landscape painting was made by Hudson Valley based artist, Eileen Murphy, in 2018. Departing from a series of the cityscape paintings, the young artist chose to use the Hudson Valley as a source of inspiration for a new series of photo-realist compositions. This picturesque scene highlights the late autumnal beauty in rural upstate New York during a late afternoon. Brilliant fall foliage of golden yellow and orange leaves contrasts against the evergreen forest in the distance, a scene that reflects in the calm pond water. Looking closely, the viewer can examine the intricate detail the artist achieves with this luminous landscape. The painting on panel is currently unframed, revealing the wood edges. Artist Statement: I make figurative paintings that are deeply indebted to the formal elements of geometric abstraction. The images merge intense attention to detail and technical virtuosity with a constant awareness of the flatness of the surface. The result is an interaction between deep illusionistic space and large, flat planes. They are in dialogue with many ideas from the history of art, particularly those of Vermeer, Jo Baer, and David Hockney. The spaces that I choose to depict are ones I know intimately: the apartment I've lived in for seven years, the studio I've had for six, my brother's kitchen, etc. It takes time to really see a place and my long relationships with these locations help me to use extreme detail and abstract elements to communicate the way that these places feel, even more than how they look.
