Laura Murray is a multi-media artist focusing on the relationship between social and natural histories. She explores these themes by combining traditional mediums with organic materials (dirt, hair, egg shells, insects), emphasizing the tension between illusion and reality. Highly influenced by memories of growing up in the Midwest, her work often showcases imagery from nature; animals are reoccurring subjects, as are children. By creating works that explore the connections between animal behaviorisms and human nature, she seeks to unveil inner truths of personal identity.


Laura Murray has participated in artist residencies in both Oklahoma and New York. She completed the Snug Harbor Artist Residency Program in Staten Island in 2013, and was awarded the Edward & Sally Van Lier Visual Artist Fellowship Grant. She was awarded her first solo show at the Newhouse Gallery, Staten Island, NY, and has been in select group exhibits at Family Business Gallery, New York, Postmasters Gallery, New York, Concepto Hudson Gallery, Hudson, NY the Nona Jean Hulsey Gallery, Oklahoma City, and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.
