Small Works on Paper by Molly Murphy
Molly Murphy continues her abstract water series with “Night Waters,” a set of smaller works on paper. The works in this series follow her current two-person exhibition with abstract landscape artist, Clare Doveton, at Landmark Bank Gallery.
Murphy lives in Lawrence, Kansas and works out of a studio in the Crossroads Art District in Kansas City. Her work most often deals with memory in its many facets, from the personal to the biological. She has created series for Baker University and BNIM on the topic, and was the 2012 Artist-in-Residence in Seaside, Florida where she worked on a series based on the neuroscience of memory and learning as it relates to the abstract work of art. Her current works hinge on the contemplative, focusing on bodies of water and memories of night.
Murphy also serves as the Coordinator for Final Fridays in Lawrence, KS, serves on the Board of Directors at the Lawrence Arts Center and coordinates art shows and performances for several local businesses.
