“Lost Identities” will take you on an exploratory tour of unfortunate human events such as war and disease from the past, present, and possible future through various artistic mediums. In this collection, Brian Murphy has drawn us into his vision of the world and into his vision of himself, by using oils and charcoal as well as digital designs.
I paint from the inside out and my work is primarily improvised. My artwork fills a void in my life and often takes an exploratory look at the world around me; from social evils to distorted reality and blurred landscapes. My paintings blend the familiar with the frightening, the beautiful with the revolting, and the tasteful with the terrible.
