Artist Meg Lionel Murphy’s paintings are informed by debilitating PTSD from severe domestic violence. She works out of a little blue shack in a junkyard on her family’s property in Wisconsin, where she paints detailed, vivid works on paper and panel depicting heartbroken bodies that magically grow larger, stronger, and scarier than the world around them. Her work has been featured in a number of exhibitions including “Interior Violence” solo show at CoExhibitions Gallery (Minneapolis), as well as group shows at Public Functionary (Minneapolis) and at the Other Art Fair (Los Angeles). Lionel Murphy received degrees in Art, Art History, and English Literature from the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities, where she additionally studied classical oil painting in Florence, Italy. After college, Meg worked as a children’s illustrator and co-founded a literary and art magazine, Paper Darts. Meg also helped to run the arts nonprofit, Pollen Midwest, that uses storytelling and art to explore social justice movements. After leaving her career in publishing to focus on painting, Meg eventually moved to rural Wisconsin to focus on her art without distraction.
She is currently working on her debut New York solo exhibition which will take place at The Untitled Space gallery in 2021.
