Fearrington Artist Murry Handler's Whimsy in Black & Grey Purchased for Corporate Headquarters
A four panel painting from the Whimsy Series has been purchased by a biotech company for its new corporate headquarters in Durham. The tetraptych is from a series of multi-canvas abstract paintings, executed in black and white acrylics on linen.
Each of the paintings in this series plays with the viewer’s perception, hence the name "Whimsy in Black & Gray", making wry comments on visual cues by showing off-kilter, canvas on canvas, askew or trompe l’oeil effects.
