About

Filmed in 2002, Elizabeth Murray (1940–2007) is shown working on the large-scale painting Bop (2002–03) in her Manhattan studio. As Murray adds and removes shapes and colors to its interconnected canvases, she expresses frustration but later satisfaction with the piece. To Murray, experiences like this, of finding resolution after struggling, was a highlight of being an artist. The completed artwork is shown at The Pace Gallery.
