Jennifer Murphy is a Boston based artist currently working at the Institute of Contemporary Art, TILL, and Mixit Print Studio.
Jennifer studied at The School of The Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University where she received her BFA and a degree in psychology and counseling.
At the Museum School, Murphy was trained as a printmaker although she now considers her practice more research based and aims to decontextualize traditional printmaking techniques to re-contextualize the fragmented figure by exploring different textile and fabric materials. Jennifer prints reduction woodcuts on objects that are overtly feminine to speak to the oppression that femmes have faced over the years that often include sewing and yarn work to over emphasize societies assumed "women’s role". The work demands intersectional feminism by addressing the constructs of femme identity through methods of coping with anger and outrage resulting from western patriarchy.
