Ivan Murphy obtained his degree in Communication Design (Honours) from NSCAD in 1992. He currently teaches at NSCAD University and works full-time from his Halifax studio. Murphy’s paintings have been shown at the Khyber Centre for the Arts, the Anna Leonowens Gallery, private galleries in Halifax and Toronto, and the Lieutenant-Governor’s residence, Nova Scotia. While still rooted in landscape, Murphy’s current work explores the idea of the canvas as a site of transition, where shifting impressions or memories are reflected through an ongoing process of obliteration and re-working.
