Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to present Works on Paper by Erin Murray and Tom Ngo in the gallery Viewing Room. The exhibit will be shown from December 8, 2011 to January 14, 2012 with the opening reception Thursday, December 8, 6 to 8 pm.
Erin Murray’s meticulous graphite drawings present common architecture on a seemingly abandoned stage. A withering aura of isolation imbues these intense, quiet landscapes.
Murray received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. She has shown in numerous exhibitions throughout Philadelphia and recently had a solo exhibition at the Abington Art Center, Philadelphia, PA. Her work is included in the collections of Center for Emerging Visual Artists, and Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.
Tom Ngo’s playful drawings of architectural elements bring together his two backgrounds as a mixed media artist and an intern at a prestigious architectural firm in Toronto. His surreal depictions of homes and buildings swinging on swing sets or attached to bicycles use the familiar elements of architecture in an illogical and whimsical way.
Ngo graduated from Carleton University, Ottowa, ON where he received his Masters of Architecture. His work has been included in many solo and group exhibitions in the Toronto area.
