Biography Statement Aaron Murphy is an award winning artist exhibiting work internationally. Since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art he continues to use premises in Goodenough College as a studio and home. His photomontages start life either as found material or as photographs taken by the artist himself, using his antique camera collection and then hand-printed in the darkroom. From these analogue beginnings the work is then digitized by computers; scanned in, projected and re-photographed, and carefully layered, edited and adjusted using complex computer programmes. This process is arduous, taking up to a year to complete per image. This time spent in their making is reflected by the time they afford in looking: the landscapes take on new aspects each time we visit them, figures and objects appear and dissipate as if through a smoke screen.
