Elizabeth Murra's inventively shaped canvases, rich surfaces and colors, and vital, distinctive forms make her one of the most challenging artists working today. Breaking the bounds of the traditional rectangle, Murray's complex multi-layered paintings and drawings, often containing images of surprisingly humble domestic objects -cups, tables, shoes- engage both feelings and intellect. her highly acclaimed art, hovering between the abstract and the figurative, is notable for its ability to integrate the most important contemporary formal issues with the domestic and emotional side of everyday life in a sometimes mysterious but always energetic narrative giving riveting artistic expression to today's chaotic world.
In this book, the dynamic evolution of Murray's art and its place in the art world are discussed with great flair and insight in an essay by art critic Roberta Smith. Also here is Murray's first major interview, in which she candidly talks about her life and her work. This discussion -conducted by organizing curators Kathy Halbreich, until recently Director of the MIT Albert and Vera List Center for the Visual Arts, and Sue Graze, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art- gives the reader an immediate sense of Murra's deep intelligence and warmth and of her wonderful vision of the world, the tragic, ironic, and humorous, confirming what has already been revealed by her art. In addition, Murray's own commentary accompanies every painting and drawing in the plate section of the book. A short essay by Clifford S. Ackley, Curator of Prints, Photographs and Drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, examines Murray's singular use of pastels and charcoal to create drawings equal in power to her paintings.
This book serves as the catalogue for a major national travelling exhibition of Elizabeth Murray's paintings and drawings. With every work shown full page and in color, it is a visual treat as well as being an important document of twentieth-century art.
