I visited Carrie Moyer’s studio a few years back in New York and was blown away. She works large — so that her paintings are in dialogue with the tradition of abstract expressionism, colorfield, and minimalist painting. She weaves universal themes characteristic of modernism together with the synthetic textures and contemporary sensibility of graphic design to make a kind of painting that is absolutely singular. I would never miss a chance to see her work in person but am always happy to receive her exhibition announcements.

    These are hypnotizing me. They’re like translucent collages and remind me of our world’s connected diversities.
