Elizabeth Murray, Bomb Magazine, January 1, 1998
“There is no question that the physicality of the making is very intense for me.”
Composer, Sergei Prokofiev, and artist, Elizabeth Murray, rewrote history in very different ways. Murray’s paintings from the 1980s challenged the traditional two-dimensional painting form. Her energetic, colorful, three-dimensional compositions reimagined the act and physicality of painting. Prokofiev’s original concerto score was destroyed in a fire during the Russian Revolution prompting him to rewrite and reimagine his lost work. See more of Murray’s works in the new exhibition, Wild Life: Elizabeth Murray & Jessi Reaves, on view at Carnegie Museum of Art through January 9, 2022.
