PAINTING + MIXED MEDIA
Tyler Murphy grew up near Joliet, Montana. He now lives in Billings and finds inspiration from the landscapes along the Beartooth front and across the backroads of Eastern Montana. He seeks to return attention to the meaningful things of life that come from working and caring for one’s home, land, friendships, and family. As the world turns ever more toward choosing whatever is fast and expedient, Murphy hopes to hone his craftsmanship making paintings that are heartfelt and one of a kind. He strives to create art full of vitality, mystery, and layers of liminal elements such as a farmer feeding with square bales in the early morning. Just as a sunrise or sunset only lasts so long, one day such work may be only found in paintings and photographs.
