Artist Statement

Zoë Murdoch's art is a visual expression of the language of her life.  An essential repetitive theme within Murdoch's work is boxes – containers which have connotations of secrets, protection, mysteries... Her work frequently incorporates photography, collage and found objects. She often relies on chance in the way she sources materials; abandoned artifacts, a sentence from a damaged book; other people's rejections become her treasure.
Murdoch's recent photographic practice is driven by a concern for the condition of urban society and the secret histories of the discarded. She is fascinated by the tragic beauty of decaying architecture and the narratives and melancholic force contained within derelict spaces.
