Clive Murphy’s practice constantly considers ideas relating to the position of the individual in terms of an increasingly ‘mass’ oriented environment, exploring themes of alienation and desire within this context. Through a combination of humor, pathos and incongruity he infiltrates commercial, urban and visual literacy in order to deconstruct rhetorical systems and prepackaged aspirational frameworks in an effort to carve out some sense of human space. Working in a characteristically lo-fi manner using materials and techniques that exist quite far down on the artistic food chain he strives for ends greater than the sums of their parts in an effort to elevate and democratise.

Previous exhibitions by Clive Murphy include Fieldgate Gallery, London; Soap Factory, Minneapolis; The Drawing Center, New York City; Mercer Union Arts Centre, Toronto; Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, Cork; Bloomberg New Contemporaries, Manchester/Sheffield/London; Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast and Eastlink Gallery, Shanghai. Murphy is currently based in New York where he is represented by Magnan Projects Gallery, www.magnanprojects.comMONO, Pallas Contemporary Projects, 11 Grangegorman Rd., Dublin 7 was shown from 08.09.07 until 13.10.07, for further information go to www.pallasprojects.org.
