Because We Care
While we find ourselves in uncharted territory, please be understanding of longer wait times for mailed goods. At Mallory Murphy Studio, we are doing our best to keep ourselves and our partners safe--this includes limiting interactions with our friends at local print shops. In an attempt to reduce face-to-face contact, single print orders must wait to be filled with at least one other order. While this does not mean you must order more than one print, it does mean you'll have to wait a bit longer for a second order to be placed. We will try our best to streamline this process and have your prints to you as quickly as possible. Thank you for understanding and thank you for shopping local!
With a 3D background in metalsmithing and jewelry, I hoped to use this more attainable medium of digital collage work as a way to get inspired again. Although I’m using new technology to create these pieced together worlds, the electronic pencil allows me to still incorporate a hand-drawn element. I deconstruct old photographs, oddities, or crisp images rich in textures and string them together to create new reality. These realities become new worlds, which are direct extensions of my mood. Although color and intensity change with each collage, they all become more detailed, more energetic, and meticulous as I go. The cautious digital erasing, done with an electronic pencil, is my meditative state. With some images requiring hours of erasing, it is there, that my mind settles. Once my mind has settled, the fusing begins--like puzzle pieces, I assign a new narrative for each element.
