Works by Elizabeth
Murray and a selection of lithographs by the late
Guston are on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant
Weyl from September 5 through October 5, 1996.
Both aritst have their autobiographical visual vocabularies
rooted in Abstract Expressionism, and for both there
is a constant struggle between the structure of the
work and the subject. The similarities between these
two artists, with their layering of objects and forms,
are numerous. Murray implements a layering of the paper
to create her three dimensional forms and Guston relies
on layering the objects themselves. Murray's new work
shows and abundance of hands, feet, and faces, manipulated
into ambiguous shapes. Guston's objects are taken directly
from his surroundings, including items such as shoes,
an easel, and paint brushes.
