Ethan Murrow (USA)
Ethan Murrow’s obsessively rendred drawings based on collaborative performances. Artist works with others whose ideas and contributions influence, inform and guide him: “This process began when my wife Vita Weinstein Murrow began filming, photographing and directing me in performances in 2004. Since then we have often worked as a duo, making short videos together. Often, the still imagery we collect forms the source material for large-scale graphite drawings that are obsessive documents of infatuated characters.” Despite a focus on working with others, the characters in recent narratives have been consistently averse to criticism and assistance. These figures, mostly male, are doomed to failure and prone to dysfunction.
