Finding One’s Style: “Guston couldn’t help himself”

Guston-1

“The importance for me of Guston is that I saw he had made this switch from abstraction, and though I didn’t fully understand it then, I thought it was brave. Now I think of it as something natural and something that happens as you grow and find yourself. You begin to turn toward what comes most naturally to you. Guston couldn’t help himself. And that gives me hope.” -Elizabeth Murray, artist (1933-2007)
