Greg Murr draws upon the natural world in the broadest sense for his imagery, exploring plant forms and blossoms as complex systems. When he arrived for his first residency with Tamarind, he was already familiar with the workshop from his time as a graduate student at The University of New Mexico, where he completed his MFA. His work at Tamarind focused on various organic forms, creating a series of exquisitely subtle lithographs with transparent layers of warm and cool grey inks, and a system of fine hand-drawn pencil lines.
Murr is represented in museum collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Sheldon Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
