Leyla Murr employs a varied range of visual techniques to create her spacious abstract paintings. Often making reference in the titles to actual times or places, the works tentatively hint at the real. Depending in the main on horizontals and verticals, they appear to suggest landscapes yet abstraction definitely offers Murr a greater facility of emotional expression. Working in acrylics can allow for a free spontaneity as images can be quickly reworked and Murr's works are the polar opposite of ponderous. Instead she has a professional ability to play with colour, composition and style to produce great results.
