Murray Lamothe

War: Say it Again War: Say it Again


After a satisfying 32-year career with the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service Murray entered the business world of designing and manufacturing, creating Cedar Mountain Wood Products. The balance of form and function was his passion as he designed and simplified outdoor wood structures and their installation.

At the age of 60 Murray enrolled in university and graduated from Algoma Laurentian with his degree in political science. With a new-found interest in writing, he completed his memoirs of his final homicide cold case, Lanyard, the 1945 murder of a local high school student. Out of respect for the living members of the family the book was never published. In this latest chapter of his life Murray has developed his own unique style of mixed media artwork blending fabric and adhesive with acoustic board. Nature in all its grandeur provides the stage for Murray’s abstract interpretation.

Influenced by his political persuasion his work often touches the untouchable and is influenced by subjects that often demonstrate man's inhumanity to man.
