About the Art

What the artist saysI enjoy the energy and immediacy communicated through visible brushwork and embrace the coupling of abstraction with representation.
Why we like itKatie repurposes an ordinary cardboard box and uses bold gesture and expressive brushwork to explore its unorthodox surface.
Where we hang itKatie’s expressive brushwork allows these abstract pieces to stand on their own. Hang this one above an entryway console for an impactful first impression.

About the Artist

Katie Murphy
Katie Murphy’s process is rooted in expression and experimentation, and manifests most often figuratively and in vivid color. Working primarily with oils, her work is influenced by her gendered experience growing up in the American South and focuses on juxtaposing themes of propriety and wildness, interior domestic spaces and nature, and containment and movement. She explores the push and pull of space, specifically through the paradox of the home and its conflicting ability to both comfort and isolate. Murphy currently lives and works in Johnson City, TN. She holds a BFA in Studio Art and is currently working towards her MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

“I love color and the energy and expression it holds. I like to swim around in the depths of a single color at times, searching for all that it can communicate.”
