Murphy’s figurative paintings surrounded by bold, beautiful colors are a
celebration of life. Through her spiritual journey Murphy seeks to explore
the struggle between human desires and spiritual evolution. The ethereal
figures explore the struggle between human desires and spiritual
evolution; explore the intimacy between the dream state and reality,
expressing a oneness with divine energy. You see the nurturing female
figures are in a state of grace for the light of hope, the light of
healing and the light of love.
Wanda Murphy obtained her formal art education at Concord College in West
Virginia. In the summer of 1996, she became the apprentice to
world-renowned linear expressionist Jean Claude Gaugy. Salvador Dali
arranged a one-man show for Gaugy at the Galerie de Seine in Paris at a
young age. Gaugy was also the apprentice to sculptor Henry Moore, while in
England. Murphy worked with Gaugy during the creation of “The Awakening”.
“The Awakening” is an 8000 sq. ft. monumental work of art that is of a
universal spiritual theme on display in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The names of artwork inspire us to dream and to think. The titles of
Wanda Murphy’s artwork inspire you to reflect within and enjoy the moment.
This linear expressionist came to the Hamptons and is at home in the
relaxed country of West Virginia, in the modern hustle and bustle of
Manhattan, and hopefully on the beaches of the East End.
