I am extremely excited to announce Moving Image, a solo exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by Indiana native Ben Murray.
Murray's most recent large-scale paintings and works on paper continue to expand the artist's interests in memory by creating abstract observational paintings that look to motion pictures as the subject. According to the artist, "It is an attempt to suspend a film’s duration by painting it while being played in real time."
A review in Chicago's New City from his most recent exhibition at Monique Meloche Gallery says "Murray’s process of constructing space parallels the way in which memory defies chronological conventions and retrieves uncontrollable shifting associations."
His work has been recently exhibited at venues across the country and highlighted in solo exhibitions at Monique Meloche Gallery in Chicago and Sidecar Gallery in Hammond. This will be his first solo exhibition in Indianapolis since 2006.
