STORIES / STORIES IN ISOLATION

Mark Murphy

Mark Murphy is an artist who works with collage. During the past eight years, alongside his design practice, Mark has enjoyed setting himself the challenge of making collage in a purely analogue way. Seeking out weird and wonderful print from the last 60 years his hand-cut, paper collages play with graphic composition, juxtaposition, space, scale and surrealism. Sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, often humorous.

For Stories in Isolation Mark has created a three-minute film about his approach to collage, whilst working on a new piece called ‘Holding On.’ The title seems to capture the mood for many during Covid-19 and as Mark reminds us, ‘there are plenty of people everywhere currently missing the embrace of friends and loved ones.’
