Personal and social narrative are the undercurrents that channel what comes out of the studio of artist, Wendy Murray. Early work, inspired by dark themes of feminine fear and grief has now given way to work that still hints at darkness, but is illuminated by symbol and metaphor. She is hesitant to discuss the “undercurrents”, as they reveal only a splinter view, denying the observer their own unique interpretation.
Driven by thematic focus, Wendy employs paint, ink, sculpture or performance in her creative explorations. Currently obsessed by the sea, a powerful, feminine motif, the meaning of Wendy’s work remains open to the viewers own perception.
