Ciarán Murphy: A Particular Nothing

Installation Views
Press release

It is with great pleasure that we announce the fourth solo show by Ciarán Murphy at Grimm Gallery.

Over the past decade, Ciarán Murphy has produced a body of enigmatic paintings whose quiet fleeting images and compulsive surfaces have gained widespread recognition. Recently, the subjects within his paintings have become more fragmented and elusive. The recognizable forms in his earlier work have given way to indeterminate shapes and architectural forms. Although some might be described as abstract, they still feel as if they are, at some point, photographically derived.
