Murray’s paintings are vibrant abstractions, sometime of figures and everyday objects, combined to create visual metaphors of the world around us. In his essay, Hickey says, “Of all the artists of her generation, who began their careers in the backwash of pop and minimalism, Murray alone found something to do with the pop sensibility that retains its spirit and ebullience. Murray’s paintings feel like something…. The exploding images have their own specific energy and the ludic colors have their own music…. Murray’s idiomatic form of expression may be best described as a still life painting that is anything but still.”

A catalogue with essay by cultural critic Dave Hickey accompanies the exhibition.
