Donal Murphy Showing at Couch Seattle in April

"Aside from the shapes and colours there are stories in the subjects of these paintings."

 I am originally from Cork, Ireland but living in Seattle, WA.

In terms of my creative output, I have a number of irons in the fire and more waiting to go in. I am in an explorative state in the Northwest of the country, allowing experiences and daily thinking to permeate my process. I have a tendency to simplify objects and reduce them to their essential components, trying to create forms by assembling simple shapes. Some thoughts on colour pervades, my reluctance to blend colors is based on my feeling that color can be experienced in a stronger, clearer way when it is compartmentalized and the shapes allow me to exhibit colour combinations I feel work well.
