John Bunion (J. B.) Murray (1908-1988) was a farmer who lived in rural Glascock County, Georgia, near the community of Mitchel. When he was approximately seventy years of age, believing he had experienced a vision from God, he began writing a non discursive script on adding machine tape, wall board, and stationery. He described it as "the language of the Holy Spirit, direct from God" and interpreted it using a bottle of water as a focusing device.
We never knew JB Murry but have always loved his art. We are lucky enough to have a few of his pieces available here at the gallery. If you see one which speaks to you, email us and we can work it out to make it yours.
