Exhibitions


From October 7th through November 6th, BoxHeart presents Deirdre Murphy: Threshold on exhibit in our main gallery
and Heather Kanazawa: Remnants of Life on exhibit in our upstairs gallery.

Deirdre Murphy’s artwork is made with the attentiveness of a scientist. She observes our natural world beyond the visible surface. Her interest lies in the interconnected qualities of art and science, specifically the micro/macro patterns that reveal our connectedness. Imagery in her artwork ranges from data visualization of ornithology charts or phosphorescent images of viruses, to cellular structures in petri dishes that morph into star clusters or light pollution maps that finally rest upon a Luna moth. Murphy’s recent pivot to virology has led to foreshadowing paintings that reflect upon our global humanity and the ties that bind us.

Kanazawa's paintings are studies of memory and place. Her work mainly is abstraction, because she feels that most memories are simply recordings of colors, textures, or sounds. she develops them, adding and subtracting paint, scraping, taking away, and playing with color and texture. It is through this process that the work begins to develop and feel fully realized. Kanazawa works intuitively and lets the act of painting guide her through each step. It is through this process that she is able to convey a sense of depth in her work. Her goal is for the painting to take on it's own voice and, in essence, to become another place other than the initial trace of memory.
