Pushdot presents the work of Thérèse Murdza August through September 2011. “The body is deeply influenced by what it senses even if the mind is focused elsewhere. As is especially true in public places where people typically pass through from one destination to another, handcrafted art objects and installations provide lively encouragement, whether consciously or unconsciously received: someone made something for you; someone is with you; we are here together.”
Portland artist Thérèse Murdza builds her signature bright, richly textured paintings for both commercial and residential portable collections. Using an animated range of circles, lines, and colors, she creates large, multi-paneled works on canvas, and smaller works on canvas and paper. Murdzaʼs early musical training remains an influence: “If we could see spoken words, if we could see music, somehow see a measure of the sound, thatʼs what I paint.”
The exhibition will feature original artwork as well as reproduction prints created by pushdot. Our collaboration with Murdza exemplifies pushdotʼs mission to work with and promote local artists, and it also marks our first show featuring a fellow Ford Building tenant.
