Shayne Murphy | Fluorescent Gray says
On view: October 14 – November 12, 2016

Anya Tish Gallery is thrilled to announce Fluorescent Gray, a solo exhibition featuring new and recent paintings and works on paper by Houston-based artist Shayne Murphy. Fluorescent Gray will mark Murphy’s inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery. The artist integrates the opposing pictorial languages of realistic figuration and sharp, flat, geometric forms in a seamless alliance, conceiving hazy, dreamlike, glacial spaces. Teetering between reality and reverie, Murphy’s work forces speculation of what we see, what we imagine, and whether these concepts are mutually exclusive.

Shayne Murphy holds an MFA in Drawing and Painting from the University of North Texas, and has exhibited his work across Texas in such venues as Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, San Antonio; Lawndale Art Center, Houston; and Texas A&M International University, Laredo. In 2014, Murphy completed the yearlong Artist Studio Program residency at Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Texas. His work can be found in private and corporate collections, including Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport.
