The Model




In Ciarán Murphy’s new paintings we encounter an unsettling array of things: strange landscapes, insects, birds, body parts, letters, architectural features and abstract shapes. Objects seem in varying states of flux; things float, or seem in the midst of changing form, while other things seem barely there. The work reflects the artists long standing attempt to grapple with a contemporary world that is completely saturated with images. Images that embody the paradoxical status of being both completely over-bearing, yet irresistible, both entrancing and anxiety provoking. They exert an almost ghostly weightless presence, blurring past, present and future; and indeed our very notions of what constitutes reality.
