21 AUGUST - 21 SEPTEMBER 2013
OPENING RECEPTION: WEDNESDAY 21 AUGUST 18H00
Whatiftheworld is pleased to present Ecstatic Entropy, an exhibition of new paintings by South African artist John Murray. Using the term entropy as a starting point to frame this body of work, Murray has created a series of paintings that exist in a state of tension between order and chaos.
The paintings, whilst attempting representational gestures toward landscapes, structures or symbols, ultimately fail in their task. Functioning in a liminal space, the paintings fall indecisively between organic form, geometric shapes and allusions toward landscape and architecture.
