Carrie Moyer merges figure and ground in her paintings. Her compositions are suggestive of natural forms, microscopic information, and sea life, among other interpretations. The paintings are elegant and intricately constructed, with multiple choreographed layers of poured acrylic. They draw viewers in and reward them with the visual pleasures of infused light, rich color, and often, glitter. As a feminist, Moyer addresses the familiar language of Abstract Expressionism and questions the authority of the “male gesture,” reinventing it for her own purposes.
