How amazing is this sculpture by Michael Murphy? By creating such a large and imposing piece, Murphy has successfully created a sculpture that succeeds in expressing an idea.
From Mr. Murphy’s site:
Michael Murphy’s methodological approach to creating multi-dimensional, sculptural pieces aims to connect the viewer’s experience with layers of delicate meaning. A Conceptualist approach lays the foundation for logistical prowess, pushing for the impeccable execution of complex ideas and materials. His work, like his process, provides a mode of problem solving, for the artist and participant alike. Murphy constantly seeks for new materials to investigate and manipulate, juxtaposing objective with form, subject with structure, and audience with tangibility.
His large-scale works seek to dominate the viewer’s physical and mental space, captivating the critical thought process as one circles around the various entities that form a cohesive whole. Pieces initially experienced on a visually flat plane resonate with meaning upon closer inspection, opening up cerebral capacities to perpetual reconsideration. The mesmerizing effect of the varied angles and ingredients of his sculptures provoke thought, using aesthetic titillation as their gateway. As structured as his pieces are, both corporeally and in their implementations, they act as vehicles for reinvention, hoping to impart the hope of possibilities.
