Resident Artist, November 19 - November 21 2011 Visiting Artist, July 28 - 30 2013
Murphy is an internationally-exhibited contemporary artist using human perception and representation to create visual rhetoric. Murphy's portfolio includes photography, painting, sculpture and video. As our very first resident artist, Michelle accomplished so much in five days. She arrived prepared to add to her ongoing body of work, Perceptual Beauty, with her photography equipment and materials. She experimented with makeup, fireworks, and a camoflage hunting shroud. Working day and night, she explored Pentwater and Hart, shooting in the studio and in the field. Michelle returned for a weekend in 2013, met the crew of resident artists, and involved a few of them in another video project for Perceptual Beauty.
