Shayne Murphy

Fever Dreaming 

Upstairs Gallery

Shayne Murphy's paintings incorporate the figure within invented and ambiguous spaces to invoke a sense of exploration and discovery. The relationship between the figures and the spaces they occupy take on the role of a transient, protector, destroyer, or remain obscured. Fusing figurative realism with linear abstraction, Murphy seeks to create a hyper-reality that acts as a manifestation of the real and imagined. He is interested in humankind's innate curiosity of the unknown and our desire for escapism.
