Brian Murphy New Work    October 14 to November 20, 2004

REVIEW Art in America (April 2005–not available online)

The exhibition of new work by Brian Murphy coincided with his installation of large-scale watercolor self-portraits at Suyama Space in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle. At Platform, Brian showed intimately smaller-scale oils and watercolors, also self-portraits, that explore the notion of looking up while looking down.

The Inaugural Exhibition of the Gallery
REVIEW Seattle P.I. 
REVIEW The Stranger

World mythologies provide us with countless stories of various unions between humans, animals, and nature and traditional art--wherever its global origins--reflects this intersection (only natural, given we once lived closer to the land we depended on and the animals we ate). Now people approach the wilderness and the animals in it like they do Disneyland: an entertaining environment that bears no relationship to daily life. As our contact with nature lessens, contemporary art reflects this disjunction more and more.
