Ryan Sarah Murphy
My creative practice is intuitive and process-driven, prompted by the found ephemera of my daily experience. Responding to the inherent energy within discarded and repurposed objects, I allow for the material to act as the guide, moving through the construction of a piece with no set plan or intended outcome.
