On Display at the Library

Now on display at the Coolidge Corner Library: Neo-Pop Folk Figurativism

Brookline artist Tim Murley’s new work is created with acrylic paint, oil sticks, china markers, and gloss glazes. The paintings have a rougher, more textured surface. His themes are inspired by travel, classes, books, music, architecture, relationships, nighttime walks, pop culture, people-watching, advertising, movies, beauty, and even missed opportunities. He translates those adventures and desires into the work.

Neo-Pop Folk Figurativism will be on display at the Coolidge Corner Library through December 30.
