Sculpture that I love – Celebrating Beauty and Diversity – Nathan Murray

Conversation among contemporaries by Nathan Murray
Nathan Murray
In Nathan Murray’s MFA thesis is a quote from American social critic Cornell West that embodies key aspects of Murray’s own thoughts:  “We’ve forgotten that a rich life consists fundamentally of serving others, trying to leave the world a little better than you found it. We need the courage to question the powers that be, the courage to be impatient with evil and patient with people, the courage to fight for social justice. In many instances we will be stepping out on nothing, and just hoping to land on something. But that’s the struggle. To live is to wrestle with despair, yet never allow despair to have the last word.”


Nathan Murray’s ceramic sculptures celebrate the beauty and complexity of diversity.  He is using his creative skills to cause a conversation.
