On today's blog post we wanted to feature emerging artist Annie Murray, whose amazing NEW paintings are currently on view! This is Annie's first solo show, and the first time we've shown her larger work at the gallery. Annie was first introduced to us during this year's PreShrunk Exhibition.
Annie Murray is a Halifax based oil painter quickly emerging onto the Nova Scotian art scene. Born in 1994 on a dairy farm in rural Ontario, Murray has been inspired to express herself through painting from a very early age.
While studying drawing and painting at OCADU in Toronto, Murray realized her path as an artist benefited more from technical based teaching than the conceptual approach taken by the university.

Fascinated with the nuances of human expression, Murray has a skill for capturing intimate moments. She often conveys intricate expressions of sadness, power, or bliss within her works, which appear strikingly against her use of vibrant colour.
