When the announcement for Elizabeth Murray’s painting show at Pace Gallery arrived in the mail, I couldn’t help but pause to think about Elizabeth and how much we all miss her passion and artistic spirit. It has been over 3 ½ years since Elizabeth’s passing and nearly 5 years since she graced the Gemini workshop. Sadly, Elizabeth succumbed to lung cancer, but fortunately she lived to see her career retrospective at MoMA and receive the public recognition she so richly deserved for an extraordinary body of rigorous but jubilant paintings. Pace will have a public reception on April 7th, where undoubtedly many of Elizabeth’s friends and fellow-artists will stop in to celebrate her work. Unfortunately Sidney and I do not arrive in New York until the following week, but we will look forward to viewing this exhibition of Elizabeth’s brilliant creations.
