’Change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way’ (Lexico, 2020).
Alter is Marcus Murison’s first solo show out of Aberdeen, showcasing his latest body of work at the Briggait. Murison focuses on the idea of the overlooked situations that occur in our urban environments. These ephemeral and liminal situations are all chance encounters from which he discovers through the act of walking. These situations are then documented through photography and then further pushed through digital drawing.
This showcase of work hopes to explore the altered state of Murison’s observations through the process of walking and documenting. These paintings are an attempt to create an interesting dialogue between objects, situations and their environmental context.
Murison Graduated from Painting at Grays School of Art in 2018 where he was selected for the RSA New Contemporaries, VAS Graduate showcase and received the Hector Memorial Fund. In the summer of 2018 following he was co-founder and coordinator at No.8 Summer programme. At the RSA:NC he was selected for the first Fleming-Wyfold Art Foundation Award. Murison is excited to continue creating ambitious work and developing his practice.
