Angeleno’s if you’re planning a trip north to attend the inaugural Silicon Valley Contemporary April 10 -13, don’t miss booth 209, where 143 Gallery will be exhibiting contemporary painter Brendan Murphy, whose work has most recently been featured on Google’s Mountain View Campus.
The New York artist’s work has taken the tech world by storm, with Google executive Jim Young inviting Murphy to broadcast live as part of the Google Talk series. Murphy discussed the creative process, while creating a fresh painting which was generously donated to the campus.
Connecting art, technology, and philanthropy, Murphy juxtaposes mathematical constructs, and iconography, with sensual female silhouettes, to guide viewers through an emotional journey of discovery. Rich in genuine emotion, the largely self-taught painter who learned under the controversial world-class artist, Eric Fischl, displays a unique combination of awareness and fantasy.
Debuting his new chalkboard inspired series; Murphy explores fractal patterns and formulas using a splash of color to connect ancient mathematics to human emotion. Fascinated by this sacred geometry, Murphy’s work has attracted collectors stemming from Fantex and Google.
The Opening Night Preview Party will be Thursday April 10, 5;30 to 9:30 and Brendan will be there to greet attendees, and discuss his work.
Centered at the cultural capital of the tech industry the Silicon Valley Contemporary will be held at the impressive San Jose McEnery Covention Center, located at 150 W. San Carlos St., San Jose CA 95113
