Pigeonholed as the ‘best artist since sliced bread’, and quite rightly so, ROOMS are delighted to announce the release of London’s super talented Benjamin Murphy’s popular print Conversation Among the Ruins who, in following on from his electrical tape inspired image making, has transitioned seamlessly to create bold, striking black and white woodcuts, and we’re excited.
Hand drawn, cut and printed, Murphy’s newest print inspired by Sylvia Plath’s poem Conversation Among the Ruins, reflects the bold fluidity of a poem rooted in tragedy and the searing pain of a poet who suffered in isolation. Free of any words, the print also allows for one’s own exploration and interpretation. The tragic story of a man’s animalistic capabilities, perhaps, or the struggles of a woman bound to her role as housewife and homemaker in the kitchen. Either way, it’s an undeniably morbid print with a subtle hint of humour and we love it. Grab yours today at www.benjaminmurhy.bigcartel.com
Benjamin will also be exhibiting at the Saatchi Gallery next month and will have a solo show in Italy this May.
