“Using a manual typewriter in a New York City loft, Jack Kerouac produced the original manuscript of On the Road during a three-week period in the spring of 1951.
Kerouac produced the continuous scroll by taping pages of semi-translucent paper together to feed the typewriter and write without interruption.
The text is single-spaced, without paragraphs, and edited in pencil by Kerouac.”
The art of Michael Murphy first caught our eye a couple years back when he participated in the Manifest Hope art shows in Denver and Washington D.C. The artist’s multi-dimensional works engage the viewer with a transformative perspective, however it’s not just tricks of the eye that he’s known for. From sound installations utilizing pools of water and live cellos to the incorporation of shadows as shading, Murphy’s ability to think outside the box, and his technical skill to bring the concepts to fruition, make his work a fun, imaginative and accessible experience. The artist’s latest solo show, ‘Look,’ just ended at New York City’s Gallery Nine 5, get a look at several of our favorite selections from the exhibit below.
