|Kevin Murphy is a very popular and talented artist who has many admirers here at LondonArt. His work speaks to the spiritual heart of art, coming from a tradition of religious, allegorical or supernatural paintings that is as old as the discipline itself. When he blends house-like shapes with ghostly faces he creates work that is moving and unsettling. His figures reach out towards a turbulent sky or dance together in an orgy of soul searching. Never dull, Murphy paints with a thick handling of paint and rich, bold colours to create intensely symmetrical works that sometimes border on abstract expressionism. The characters in his work rub together in a blitz of confusion or throw up their hands in realisation of being the souls that have been lost. Certainly not for the feint hearted, but never less than striking, this is skilful and meaningful art.
