Mike Murray

Minneapolis, MN

Artists bio available upon request

This body of work is an exploration of the landscape I grew up in and continue to live in. Milwaukee was my home through college with Lake Michigan always present for scale. In fact the Layton School of Art and Design I graduated from was built on the shore of that Great Lake. My grandfather built a log cabin ‘up north’ in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest where my older brother and I spent every summer through high school. We skied Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the 1960’s winters. I moved to Minneapolis right out of college and discovered Minnesota's special landscape. The oil and cold wax paintings in this show reflect my memories of this northern place.
