Working mainly in collage and painting, Murray’s approach to his work explores “painting’s relationship to time and object than the production of digital images for immediate consumption”. Building on his site-specific installation ‘Painted Shut’, he redevelops earlier paintings through “a series of time-rich processes”.
Whether a refreshing or reactionary response to a contemporary context, there’s something in an approach to image generation that ignores rather than engages with potentially problematic modern modes of production.
