Rev. Luke Murphy has used computers to assist and produce his work for the past seven years. This project and the many charts he has made are the manifestation of a graphing project started on in 1994 when he first graphed the relation of Suffering to Pain. He has produced several collections of these works that chart the impossible quantification and monetization of elements of the psyche and spirit. Parallel to this work, Rev. Murphy has also shown computer-generated drawings and projections based on Gnostic and Masonic writings. Much of his painting is also developed digitally. His most recent exhibit of landscapes was the result of repeated re-processing of �template� images from earlier landscape paintings. These evocative works are first resolved digitally and then manifested in concise black and white oil paint, resulting in a digital rendering of emotionally-charged and expressionistic painting.
Rev. Murphy graduated with and MFA from SUNY Purchase after completing his BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and a BS from the University of Toronto. He has been working as developer and design director for the internet divisions of major companies including, Chase, Sony Online, and CBS. He is currently the Director of Production at MTV.com, VH1.com, and CMT.com.
