This is Ivan Murphy’s first Solo Exhibition at Studio 21. A graduate of NSCAD and professional artist since 1998, he also works part time for the Atlantic Pilotage Commission in the Halifax harbour as a deckhand. His work is abstract, rooted in memory and experience and is inextricably tied to process and medium. His paintings are influenced by his travels and his local surroundings, often with nautical undertones and titles. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants and has completed commissions for clients ranging from Canada Post and the Canadian Forces to Halifax Regional Municipality and Saint Lawrence College. Murphy’s works are in numerous national and international collections.
