Using as source material a turn of the 20th century photo portfolio book bought at a flea market on Berlin’s Unter Den Linden, Murray continues his experiments in traditional photographic methods and their eternally renewed relationship to painting. For Die Welt In Farben, Murray re-configures the photo lithograph of one of Europe’s great sights found on each of the book’s 41 pages as a collage made from his great stash of photo and painted imagery. These collages are then photographed on large-format negatives and printed traditionally, in black and white on fiber-based paper. Murray then colours each page by hand, using long-since discontinued archival photo oils, in the manner that photos were coloured at the beginning of the 20th century. These replacements are then re-attached to the original pages, completing the substitution of one definition of original with another. (2014) - from Wil Murray's website
