OIL, by Mark Murphy, is comprised of drawings that were created in a fur trapper’s journal acquired from ebay for $4.75 plus shipping. The 1920s journal had belonged to Johnie West and his diary of sales receipts and supplies are the backdrop for this 40 page drawing collection. Mark thought it to be appropriate, “It seems that there is a direct relation between fur trapping and oil hunting.” : OIL features over 40 drawings, written entries and commentary about the world’s favorite fossil fuel – oil.
