A sweet nostalgia for (allegedly) better times.

hpgrp gallery New York is pleased to feature Margaret Murphy’s newest works inspired by idyllic town Celebration, Florida. Built in the midst of Disney World’s charm, the town of Celebration offers visitors a modern take on a time when manners meant something and social traditions were cherished.

Margaret’s colorful paintings speak of the enduring perceptions and misconceptions surrounding contemporary life. As pinned down by our trinkets, pastimes and values, these paintings express the simple yet complex ideologies surrounding social graces and expectations in tandem with the excesses of American consumption.
