In McMurray's new work, couples and isolated figures are caught in intimate moments of everyday routine. Domestic interiors such as living rooms and bathrooms become stage sets for unsettling dramas.
The protagonists of these vignettes reveal themselves through mirrors, doors and stairwells. Fireplaces serve as backdrop infernos, showers and bathtubs as sanctuaries. The environments seem familiar and lived in, but the details of the inhabitants lives' remain mysterious.
Men and women are clothed and unclothed. What is public and what is private is called into question. McMurray's subtle and delicate characterizations suggest not only states of being, but also different states of mind.
