About the Exhibition: 

Jennifer Murphy’s handcut collage and sculptural assemblages conjure fantastical landscapes and ethereal creatures. Created from secondhand nature books and encyclopedias, the delicate images, pulled together through intuition and whimsy, play on dichotomies between life and death, decay and rebirth, and the cycles of the natural world.
