Nuit, 2018, acrylic on paper, 22” X 30”.

This exhibition presents the pathway James B Murphy took from the representational to more suggestive but still identifiable images and then beyond the suggestive to the pure abstract.

“What interests me is the virtue of an image. Why do I find one image exciting and a similar one dull? While the answer may relate to composition, color, rhythm, incompleteness, suggestion, and other variables, I believe the source of an abstract painting’s strength must be uncertain.”
Odalisque, 2018, oil on canvas, 24” X 42”.
