Elizabeth Murray

Elizabeth Murray’s distinctive and unusual paintings make her one of the foremost artists working in New York today. Her work includes sophisticated formal elements, such as complex coloration and inventive shapes that jut out and protrude from the wall. She uses everyday objects that allude to primal imagery as well as a highly individualized sense of personal drama. In an interview in her downtown studio, Murray talks at length about her inspiration, the making of her art, and her 1987 show at the Paula Cooper Gallery. Included are interviews with Paula Cooper, her first dealer in New York, and Roberta Smith, art critic for the New York Times.

This edition also includes paintings shown at the 1997 and 2003 exhibitions at Pace Wildenstein gallery. Comments on the artist’s recent work are provided by Robert Storr, curator of Murray’s 2005 retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.
