Ursula Eating by Aileen Murphy


Murphy is a painter who is working on the borders of figuration and abstraction. Paint appeals to the physical body and the imagination which has brought Murphy to embrace gestural painting on a large scale creating a type of psychic figuration. Her paintings often contain bodily parts-  ear, mouth, vagina, hand, back. She explores improvisation and play within her process to expand and undo what is known.
