About

GwendolynMurphy-7.jpg

Gwendolyn Murphy honors the female form in a contemporary context through the reversal of male-established conventions. During the Renaissance period, the narrative of the female nude was painted by men with a voyeuristic gaze. Murphy explores this dated perspective and how women have been exploited in visual culture. Her large scale quilts portray women in positions of power and agency.
