Portraits of Will
Will Murray is an emerging figurative artist working in various mediums on paper including pastel, gouache, ink and graphite. With soft pastels as his choice of medium, each work possesses a deep sense of character, the outlandish nature of the subject’s posture and expression granting his artworks an air of mystery. Murray has worked in the studio at Arts Project Australia since 2016 and has exhibited in Arts Project Australia’s annual group exhibitions as well as The Affordable Art Fair, Melbourne (2019) and The Other Art Fair, Melbourne (2019). This exhibition marked his first solo show. Coinciding with Will Murray's solo exhibition is the group show 'Pleased to meet you' Exhibition Dates | 8 February – 14 March 2020 Image | Will Murray The Lady with the Flower Hat 2019 pastel on paper 68 x 48 cm Private Collection, Melbourne View below for a small selection of work from the show.
