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

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
