Cloud Shadow (2012)
Oil on canvas
A graduate of NSCAD University and Halifax resident, Ivan Murphy has exhibited in public and private galleries across Canada. He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants and has completed commissions for clients ranging from Canada Post and the Canadian Forces to Halifax Regional Municipality and Saint Lawrence College. Ivan’s work is rooted in experience and memory and is inextricably tied to process and medium. When not painting in his Agricola Street studio, he crews on one of the pilot boats that guide vessels in and out of Halifax Harbour.
