Wil Murray’s explosive and seductive work presents paint as subject in We Pet Your Cat to Death?. Murray shoots paint up onto a pedestal of foamy stability while hanging it off to experience three dimensional spaces away from the surface that somehow holds it all together. He constructs locations for paint to occupy, making it stand up and stand out, carefully moulding, pouring, lifting, folding and intertwining it. Revelling in the act of assembling a painting, Wil Murray humanizes his subject and makes it bleed and ooze and cry and scream.
