In the Grass

Catherine Murphy

"...a 4-by-6-foot aerial view of a bright green and yellow garden hose lying in tangles on suburban grass, which took 3 years to finish. It is all so riveting that you may not notice the snake slithering through the grass’s the snake of abstraction in the garden of realism: Jackson Pollock, that is, whose drip paintings are obliquely evoked by the arabesque rhythms of the hose in Ms. Murphy’s work."
