According to New York artist, James Austin Murray,
"The focus in my paintings is light. They have a reflective nature that interacts with the light around them. This makes the work subtly interactive with their environments. Black absorbs the full spectrum of light and what we have left is pure reflections of color.
I'm compelled to make these paintings by my interest in light and movement, in the paint itself, and the color and character of reflective light.
At times I work off-square. I let the shapes influence the paint and give it both a parameter to play with and work within."
