The Gallery: John Murphy

John Murphy is one of those rare artists who pays as much attention to the frame as the work inside. It's probably safe to say that the frames make these artworks, which are very much about objecthood...

Based in a studio in Philadelphia, Murphy makes limited-edition photographs on a small scale, then pairs them with a decorative frame that he finishes with spray enamel. The candy color of each frame is carefully chosen to compliment the artwork inside. Pieces are $150 each.
