Portraits of P J

John Baumann

1986, 10:00 minutes, colour, English


Toronto artist Pat Murphy departs from the classical idea of the portrait in his abstract combinations of bright colours, shapes, and words. In conversation, he describes how the work developed over four years, culminating in an exhibition and new directions for the future.
