40th Street AIR resident Brenna K. Murphy pres.“Planning: Childhood Drawings Revisited” solo show

40th  Street AIR resident Brenna K. Murphy 
“Planning: Childhood Drawings Revisited” 
at our AIRSPACE Gallery

By adhering single strands of her hair to paper, Brenna has re-created her childhood drawings that depict floor plans of imaginary houses. Her nomadic upbringing - moving eight times and living in six states by the age of eighteen - inspires her work about home and domesticity. Reflecting on the objects found in domestic spaces, the physical environments in which we dwell, and the human body, she strives to understand how materiality interacts with psychological processes to form our concepts and ideals of home.  With "Planning: Childhood Drawings Revisited," Brenna explores how young children intuitively process challenging emotional experiences through art, and celebrates their capacity for fresh, uninhibited mark-making while drawing.
