Patricia Murphy’s paintings for her show entitled “Smoke” continue her exploration of strong, yet modest, women -- from the Bolivian women wrestlers known as Cholitas to the overlooked street vendor.
The paintings seemingly capture a moment in time just as it fades from our view, effectively examining impermanence, loss, and the ephemeral. As a painter, Patricia is interested in the relationship between muted color, light and texture.
