Have you met…Rebecca Murtaugh.


An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Rebecca Murtaugh, and she was recommended to me by Paul Behnke, and Matthew Neil Gehring.

Rebecca Murtaugh lives in Brooklyn and works in Clinton, NY.

Artist Statement.

“My studio practice engages an experimental and playful process with a variety of media that explore the space between sculpture and painting. I am interested in the history of objects and materials for their transformative potential. While I often work within parameters, improvisation and intuition drive my actions in the studio along with a strong desire and consideration of beauty, form and color. I maintain a studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and upstate New York” RM
