Lyndsey Ingram presents the debut print show of London artist Suzy Murphy (b. 1964). Known for her highly sought-after paintings that treat memories of landscape as an evocative self-portrait of her inner experience, Murphy has recently begun working in monoprint.
Trained at St Martin’s, Murphy has painted her entire life and began making monoprints two years ago when she was drawn to the medium for its spontaneity.
The printing has helped my work so much. The lines have to be clear and sure in the print and its spilled over into painting. Monoprinting requires focus and energy and decisiveness – which I have learnt from. Its given me clarity and courage, for sure – Suzy Murphy
