Works from the Cottage - -The images of John Philip Murray

Cottage Evolution - -The music of Cormac McCarthy

As both a practitioner and a receiver, I have been bound to both Painting and Music since I was a small boy.

In August 2014, Cormac, knowing my work as a painter, asked me if I’d be interested in making the artwork for an album that he was in the process of recording. I was delighted to be asked and said yes. My previous interpretations, in 1992, were responses to music already made. Here was an opportunity to interpret music that was in the process of being made.

The whole project has been satisfying on several levels; Cormac has been a joy to work with, extremely gifted musically, very supportive of my ideas and a warm generous person.
