Balance Artist

I immediately was drawn to this piece by Elizabeth Murray because of the variety of color and use of shape reminded me of the urban art often seen in New York City. Murray plays with perspective by layering different images, with larger, bolder pieces in front and smaller, more subdues pieces in back. Despite the odd shapes and proportions of the individual images, there is a sense of balance towards the center of the piece. The bold blue fences on the top right and bottom left of the piece contribute to this balances, as well as the music notes on the left and right side
