Brendan Murphy’s work can be seen in over 500 private and public art collections around the world. Each piece captures raw emotion through a juxtaposition of geometry, reality vs. fantasy and profiles of women. Murphy comes to New York to premiere “Lovers and Thieves: Portraits of Woman II” at The Atelier Building.
The exhibit begins Thursday, April 12 and is the second in a series, which premiered in the Miami Art Basel Show in December 2011. It’s been three years since Murphy has showcased in New York. Bigger is better this time around at “Portraits of Woman II,” Murphy will feature large scale paintings, including a 11 feet high and 22 feet long wildflower piece.
Murphy’s blend of contemporary art and expressionism create something truly unique and beautiful, each piece is rich in emotion and explores the elegance of woman.
This exhibit at Solfire Roving Gallery is not your typical silent room walk around. Along with showcasing Murphy’s work, a live band is playing along with free food from Garlic Pizza and an open bar provided by Auténtico Tequila Alacrán, Société Perrier, Sant Arturo Wine and Medea Vodka.
