In her paintings and drawings, Murray investigates the architecture of

bureaucracy through the stripped down buildings of Modernism’s municipal

structures, revealing the protocols of officialdom by careful observation and

interpretation of what she believes to be the underappreciated beauty of

buildings of authority and procedure. Working with flat planes of color and

contrasting textures, the artist creates powerful images of the American

architectural scene, revealing an architecture that exclaims its purpose.
