Murrie Rosenfeld is best known for her self-portraiture of deeply digital and palpably altered characters, installed dynamically with crafted objects responding to the universe of her images.
The characters Murrie morphs into are often drawn lovingly from a childhood with a real estate agent single mom in the Silicon Valley 2000s, a relentlessly evolving suburban dystopia fueled by the explosion of tech companies. Like an episodic procedural sitcom, home-buyers and transplanted families came in and out of her life: the tech-bro, the zen health capitalist elite, the wealth obsessed dreamer, the filthy rich genius nerd, and the perfect PTA house-wife. All of them sought to transform capital into personal worlds and identities.
Using her own body as a base-form, Murrie, like her subjects, augments herself with hair, clothes, and makeup and then bakes it all in digital editing. Murrie draws from costume comedies (Adam Sandler, Mike Meyers, Tyler Perry, Wayans Brothers, etc) whose tone is so absurd that you’re forced to laugh with them, discarding your seriousness.
Murrie studied Fashion and Photography at Pratt while working for the fashion label Vaquera. Recently, Murrie has worked in set design and assisted on various fashion photoshoots, commercial films, and music videos – all informing the technical approach to her world-building. Whenever her kid sister Leah isn’t available to assist, she constructs her photos herself mostly in California relatives’ homes and garages – the green screens and printed backdrops sometimes draped over boxes of family memorabilia – or at her home studio in Queens.
The photos displayed are inspired by the unspoken but mindboggling popularity of incest porn. In her grandma’s kitchen, Murrie styles herself as both the step-mom and step-son, defying and consuming both each other and themselves.
Accompanying the photos are original garments showing tattoos before laser removal, breasts before/after augmentation, ephemerally dated strip mall signage, and slogan t-shirt.
Together, these abstractions of human visual culture explore how we manage our fantasies, anxieties, and desperations to shape our worlds in our image – dellutedly seeking permanence and true-form in a world of fading fashions.
