Walter Tandy Murch: The Spirit of Things

About this exhibition

An important retrospective exhibition of the work of Walter Tandy Murch (1907-1967), exploring his interest in cinema, science and technology. The Spirit of Things provides insight into the work of the Canadian-born artist who moved to New York in 1926, where his work developed a distinct vision of time and place.

Beginning in the 1940s, Murch began painting still life compositions, taking cues from the history of painting in order to build a bridge to the modern age. In doing so, he generated a language of the times– the transition from the mechanical to the space and information age– but also considered a philosophical dimension and a spirit of things.

Organized and circulated by the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa.
