Bri Murphy grew up in the green mountains of Vermont, where she began her career as an artist selling her drawings to her mom for 25¢ apiece. She attended the State University of New York at New Paltz where she earned Bachelor’s degrees in Ceramics, Art Education, and a minor in Art History. After graduating in May of 2013, she moved to Lincoln, Nebraska to be an Artist-in-Residence at the LUX Center for the Arts. She was appointed to the position of Gallery Director at the LUX in January 2015 and continues to work in her studio. Her work exists in the space between science and art, with her application of 3D medical imaging software to slipcast porcelain forms. Bri has always been compelled by the relationship of our physical selves to our psychological beings and her work draws on the resulting tension of this dynamic.
