A kinetic sculpture referencing that which is unseen but always surrounds us like the wind and weather.
Ellie Murphy explores the relationship of personal and cultural nostalgia in subject matter, material, and method. Her work straddles the line between childhood and adulthood while questioning the borders of fine art and traditional craft forms. Murphy sees interdependence between the multiplicities of cultures in our world and makes sculptures as a way of recognizing and playing with the unintended and humorous connections between them. Ellie has exhibited extensively throughout the United States. She lives and works in Queens, NY.
