2 Nov -30 Nov 2007

This exhibition took place in the Architecture Gallery in the RIAI in Merrion Square. Derville Murphy’s 2nd solo exhibition was an eclectic collection of paintings by the artist in response to people and places, particularly the viewer’s emotional response to decay and demolition in the built landscape. The painting on the exhibition poster, The last stand- Homage to Monet, shows the demolished terrace in Landsdowne Road which had been a strong visual motif in Sandymount for many years with its uncompromising skeletal form. It was with a sadness that defied logic that the artist admitted to witnessing the terrace being knocked down. Studies of Pearse tower in Ballymun also in the process of demolition explore similar themes
