Biography   Robert Murray


A sculptor of monumental outdoor abstraction as well as a printmaker, painter and art teacher, he is a regular exhibitor in New York and in his native Canada. In 1999, the National Gallery of Canada at Ottawa held a major retrospective of his work.

His artwork shows an early fascination with the minimalist design and monochromism of Barnett Newman's work, but Murray became more playful and experimental with shapes, many of them conic forms suggesting Indian tepees.

He uses Cor-Ten steel, hot rolled and forged steel, aluminum with acid patina, clear aluminum, galvanized iron and techniques of punch pressing and spray welding. The pieces are "in-your-face" structures with obvious process involved and color suggesting emotion.
