Elizabeth Murray: "Bop"

Mar 27, 2013 8:22PM

"When I start to really hate it, it starts to go someplace. You have to get down into that place where you absolutely hate it and want to rip it off the wall—rip it to pieces and throw it out—to start getting into it."

—Elizabeth Murray, from the Art21 Exclusive video, Elizabeth Murray: "Bop"

In a new video from Art21's Exclusive series, Elizabeth Murray (1940-2007) is shown working in her Manhattan studio on the large-scale painting Bop (2002-03).
