The Stone Age, 2006, Acrylic, glitter on canvas. 60x84
Introducing Carrie Moyer
who is interested in, "expanding the gene pool of painting through the introduction of new technologies as well as contemporary social and political concerns." It's her pale silhouettes and shocks of color that grabbed my attention -- and see below... you gotta love all the glitter!
Members of the Clan, 2008. Acrylic on Canvas, 68 x 72 in
from her visiting artist bio off the cooper-union site…"Her paintings grab twentieth-century resistance graphics off the web and embeds these histories within a frame of modernist painting gestures." I didn't notice that imagery at first... but take a closer look.
Rope Dancer Returns, 2007. Acrylic on Canvas, 48 x 92 in
Gimcrack. Acrylic, Glitter on Canvas. 40 x 28 in
Gong, 2008. Acrylic, glitter on Canvas, 24x 20 in
Coulee. Acrylic on Canvas. 40 x 60 in
Moyer shows at Canada – a gallery worth visiting on the lower east side…55 Chrystie btw Hester and Canal (actually in an old slaughter house...sounds grim, but a very cool space, go find them).
Know any artists whose work would make a home a lovelier place? Send ideas to The Gallery. Thanks!
