About

24 x 18 inches, oil on wood panel Custom black stained wood Larson Juhl floater frame Eileen Murphy's oil paintings are built like stage sets, charged with the energy of something about to happen. She invites us to fall in love with light in a series of detailed landscapes focused on three small ponds near her parents' home in Hillsdale, NY. Shadowed fields, glistening water, and spindly, bare tree branches are completed in passages of fluid brushwork and precise detail. Tire tracks leave a deep, rich impression in the soft ground, implying a scene from early spring. Patches of expansive blue sky and grassy fields are separated by contrasting horizons where Murphy displays her skill in hyper realistic brushwork. Her subjects are simple, yet tensions build from the contrast of the clear blue sky and the stillness of the ground. Murphy is based in Brooklyn and received her M.F.A. at Pratt Institute and has since shown nationally, while exhibiting with Carrie Haddad Gallery since 2009. 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.
