The energy of Elizabeth Murray

In a 1991 interview Murray, stated, "When you walk out of the studio, and you walk down the street that's where you find art. Or you find it at home, right in front of you. I paint about things that surround me-things that I pick up and handle everyday. That's what art is. Art is an epiphany in a coffee cup. "
Elizabeth Murray, A Pioneering Painter.
