Marilyn Murphy

Short Stories is a collection of Marilyn Murphy's graphite works on paper, centered around nostalgic subjects. Marilyn says: "My drawings typically include one or two figures involved in an improbable action or working at some curious task. While occasionally my art has a political element, many of the pieces in this series comment upon the act of seeing, the creative process or some aspect of human experience. Strong lighting and shadows create a sense of mystery while the identities of the men and women are obscured in order to direct the focus of the viewer toward their activity. "
