Simply Human Series
Terry Murray’s Simply Human Series evolved out of a fascination with weathered and found objects, especially wood, and a need to create art that was evocative and spoke to just about anyone. This series explores what it means to be fully human in a community; to foster conversations, spark ideas and evoke possibilities. It’s about being open and open-minded—not making a statement, but creating a flow of dialogue.
Terry’s Simply Saints series began with the gift of antique wooden organ pipes from Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Cornwall, New York. The figure of Saint John that emerged from one of these beautifully crafted pipes, and the process of trying to capture a saint’s essence, have inspired this series. Trips to Ireland, Spain and Mexico, and an immersion in these rich cultures, have informed the creation of this special collection.
