“Sadie Laska: Homesick & “Luke Murphy: Promised Light 
Canada Art Gallery 
60 Lispenard St, NYC 
March 5 – April 13, 2024 

The Canada Art Gallery will be presenting two extravagant solo exhibitions next month, with artists Sadie Laska and Luke Murphy alongside their individual collections. Titled “Sadie Laska: Homesick” and “Luke Murphy: Promised Light“, the gallery presents two exhibits highlighting the artists’ solo artwork. Both exhibits will have an opening reception held on March 7th, from 6 to 8pm. 

Homesick presents Sadie Laska’s new work. As stated in the press release, “With oil paintings, fabric works and mono prints, Laska creates a spectacle that is political but not polemical, posing questions and provoking reflection as she takes on the ambiguities of contemporary life.” 

Her palette often features bold blocks of unadulterated color filling large surfaces which have been carefully selected by Canada. The gallery emphasizes Laska’s ability to include subtle puns, double entendres, and absurdist humor in every brush stroke. 

Sadie Laska has had her work featured in a multitude of exhibitions across the globe, such as New York’s 56 Henry, the Page Gallery in South Korea, and at Ceysson & Bénétière in Saint-Étienne, France.

For the last two decades, Luke Murphy has wrestled with ways to incorporate the digital world into his artwork. One of the first digital artists to use the web itself in the 1990s, the Canada Art Gallery highlights how Murphy constantly tests the artistic boundaries of technology. 

In Promised Light, three towers will be on view together for the first time. As stated in the press release, “Celestial Pylon blinks at the viewer,  golden halos of light beaming from its knowing center. My Doodem offers up painterly squares of color, genially fading in and over one another as if not to draw too much attention to itself. Rising Glitch sits colder and more formidable on a mishmash of black stretcher bars that threaten to topple under the weight of its failing images.”

Luke Murphy has exhibited in solo exhibitions at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Scottsdale, the Shane Campbell Gallery in Chicago, and at Postmasters Gallery in New York, and many more.
