About

Gestural abstract expressionist painting on wood panel in colorful hues of indigo blue, gold, and burgundy "Time and Again 2", 2020 by Bruce Murphy 10 x 8 x 1 inches, enamel paint and metallic powders on beveled wood panel Signed, verso Excellent condition and ready to hang as is This gestural abstract painting on wood panel was made by Hudson Valley based artist, Bruce Murphy, in 2020. The painting was created with multiple layers of enamel paint that were spread across the paper to reveal interesting color combinations of deep indigo blue with accents of gestural paint splattering in warm burgundy against a metallic gold surface. The painting on archival paper is mounted on a sleek beveled panel so it floats subtly on the wall. Pairs well with REF: LU2276629572 About the work: Texas native Bruce Murphy brings us a new series of paintings using his preferred materials of enamel paint and various metallic powders. Over the years, we have seen Murphy’s abstract color compositions take on characteristics of landscapes where horizon lines distinctly separate land from sky in minimalist blocks of color. In the new work, Murphy introduces a grid work of straight, measured lines that pierce through the expansive color schemes with the implied specificity of an Agnes Martin. Diaphanous clouds of color are layered within veils of gold and silver metallic powders. A true master of this medium, the artist’s deft application results in a suavely knitted fabric of shimmering light that not only reflects but also emits from, through and behind the nebula of color. Murphy, who cites Pierre Bonnard as a major influence, invents a universe on a two dimensional plane where his marks and incisions become points in the cosmos. Bruce Murphy obtained a BFA in painting from the Parson’s School of Design in New York City. After a long career in graphic design, he now lives in Rhinecliff, NY and devotes himself full-time to his art.
