Painting daily life at the dry cleaners – in pictures

The Five Dresses series by Canadian painter Caitlyn Murphy shows the same dresses at dry cleaners in her home city of Toronto. “The paintings catalogue handwritten slips, garment bags, clothes hangers and assembly lines. The dresses are the constant, allowing the viewer to thread together a narrative.”

Does she have a favourite dress? “It’s hard to choose because they all represent different periods in my life. The blue and white seersucker dress was a fun challenge to paint.”
