Ciaran Murphy : All that’s air melts into solid

Press release

Ciaran Murphy (1978, Ireland) will present new paintings for his second solo show at the gallery.

His work takes the form of enigmatic large and small-scaled works in oils on paper or canvas. Although simple at first glance, these paintings can be complex and contradictory. The subject deals predominantly with ideas of the ‘natural world’, how humans observe and categorize nature in an attempt to understand it as well as the dialectic tension between ideas of nature and technology.
