It Goes Beyond The Face
work by Timothy Murphy
May 2-30, 2019
Artist Reception: Friday, May 17 | 6-8 pm 

Join us for the artist reception of "It Goes Beyond The Face!" Artist Timothy Murphy uses expressive clay sculpture and oil paints to create narratives and evoke human emotions within his work. His paintings create a backdrop for his hand sculpted faces that are combined together to share a unique story.   

"The paintings I create are a theatre in which these embodied ceramic heads exist to act out their eternal plays; whether they are drawn from subjects like the Bible, or mythology or even everyday events. In recent years I began to combine my paintings with sculpted ceramic heads...As my work progressed into painting and beyond I began combining the faces with the painted surface." -Timothy Murphy
