Study for Untitled (James) i, 2020,

$2,200.00

graphite on canvas, timber, brass, 10 x 21 x 1.5 in / 25 x 52 x 4 cm

Study for Untitled (James) i & ii are part of a new series of works exploring the polarities of ‘sameness’ and ‘difference’ through subtle variations in surface quality. Both works are graphite on canvas with a functionless brass ‘shelf’, evoking an altarpiece or some kind of ritual object. The 1:2 format is a recurring motif of Murray’s work that provides a formal and conceptual framework for ‘object-based’ painting. The interplay of light and material is heightened by reflections between the graphite and brass, which change depending on the surrounding environment.
