About Carrie Moyer
“Carrie Moyer, painter, writer and activist, melds hard graphic shapes with biomorphic forms in expertly handled acrylic, or in the artist’s words “the ugly step-child of oil paint.” Her work simultaneously recalls Surrealism, 70s counterculture graphics and abstract expressionism, fused with an expressly feminist bent and an interest in alternative cultural histories. Moyer has throughout her artistic career been invested in queer and feminist activism: She cofounded Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!) in 1991, and has worked with and designed agitprop graphics for Queer Nation, the Lesbian Avengers, the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization (ILGO) and the New York City Anti-Violence Project. Moyer’s writing has appeared in Art in America, Artforum, Modern Painters, the Brooklyn Rail and other publications, and her essays have also been included in a range of anthologies—from Queers in Space: Communities, Public Spaces and Sites of Resistance to The Studio Reader: On the Space of Artists.Part of the Contemporary Perspectives Lecture Series.” – the description of the video at youtube.
Video interview with painter Carrie Moyer (USA). 2011
Carrie Moyer presented her exhibition Canonical, September – October 2011, at CANADA, 55 Chrystie Street, New York. In the above interview at CANADA, New York Carrie Moyer says: “I think that people, who make paintings make messages for other painters in their paintings, as they know that nobody else is going to get it“. I find this statement interesting, even though I am probably not able to spot the messages, which are hidden in plain sight.
