Jan Murray’s Redress consists of bodies of canvases that wear and portray clothing. These are not ordinary portraits, which illustrate, for example, the function of garments in covering and highlighting the contours of a human body, or which signal social status. Instead, they pay homage to clothing per se. Through synthesising an exceptional attention to detail, alluring colours, delicate layering and intricate technical accuracy, Murray draws our attention to objects that we live most of our lives wrapped up in.
