John Murray

John Murray’s latest exhibition is a summary of his artmaking practice to date, just as his work visually summarises his and his community’s everyday life.

John observes components of daily living which often go un-represented in visual art: the leisurely joys of camping and fishing on country with his family and the journeys of the commercial trucks which frequently pass his home. Such everyday occurrences become more-than-life, though. His depicting of the oft ignored means his scenes are rare painterly snapshots snatched from obscurity.
