Jennifer Murphy makes work using cast-off materials including used books. Her work responds to transformation in the natural world, as well as the personal and collective mourning of this world. Murphy finds inspiration in poets through the ages who have looked to the power of nature by way of memory and loss, the continuum of time, ecology and hope. Murphy is a Toronto-based artist working in collage and mixed media. She has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as the Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver); The Power Plant (Toronto); White Columns (New York); the MOCA (Los Angeles); and recently has had solo exhibitions at Gallery 44 and Clint Roenisch Gallery (both Toronto). Murphy has been on the longlist of the Sobey Art Award three times and has received numerous grants and awards. In 2012 she participated in the residency A PAPER A DRAWING A MOUNTAIN at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Murphy’s work has been included in publications such as Canadian Art, Flash Art, Juxtapose, N+1, Bad Day and C Magazine. Her work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections including TD Canada Trust, the Bank of Montreal, RBC, Scotiabank, McCarthy Tétrault LLP, MedCan and the Drake Hotel.
