Stepping towards the threshold of unbeknown space, Lottie Murphy’s paintings allow us to disappear into a conceptual vision of architecture and broad expanses. Engineering worlds of impossible structures and disappearing forms, Murphy exercises the imagination and protrudes alarmingly elusive landscapes. Brush strokes wash away boundaries to dizzying effect. There is a separation, from boundaries, from context, which allow Murphy to create a space free of everyday expectation. Suddenly doors are possibilities to unknown realms. Washes of colour sweep us off to impossible platforms. The elusive worlds are a freedom from reality and the painterly quality of Murphy’s work provides an absorbing space to escape to.
My paintings are concerned with liminal space, questioning the logic of the physical, virtual and imagined. I aim to challenge zones of demarcation interrupting the typical depiction of a boundary; slippage and softness is countered by the fixed and secure. By deconstructing photographs and found images of architecture I create large-scale spaces that engulf the viewer into an insecure, absurd otherworld. These spaces become edgelands, the unwanted, undeveloped and unimaginable space between the city and countryside, a place of mystery and beauty, free from context and judgment.
