Marcia Hafif


Over the past few decades, Marcia Hafif has built a body of work that includes writing, photography, sculpture, installations, and paintings. In 1972 Hafif came to a personal and process-based practice of working, beginning a series of monochrome works that explore the methods and materials of drawing and painting. At a period when the relevance of painting was in question, she concluded that the only way to proceed was to focus on, as she wrote in Artforum, “the materials and techniques with which art is made.” Hafif has questioned the discipline of painting by exploring and experimenting with types of paint (acrylic, oil, egg tempera, ink, watercolor, enamel) and supports (canvas, wood, paper, wall) for over four decades. -Hammer Museum
