Finding Place – Eileen Murray

Finding place is an exploration of dislocation, unbecoming, isolation and acceptance. Moving from a farm on the flat prairies of south eastern Alberta to the coulees of Lethbridge, Murray has expanded her long-time investigation into the ‘home’ to include the landscape in which one knows and loves. This move and the proximity to the mountains in which she grew up in has affected her color palette and linework in the most unexpected ways, and she is excited for landscape to begin seeping into her formal inquiry of ‘home’ while maintaining a curiosity of what makes a house a home, still life and the qualities of the baroque including nostalgia, bravado and theatricality.
