Carrie Moyer

Carrie Moyer is an artist and writer known for her sumptuous paintings which explore and extend the legacy of American Abstraction, while paying homage to many of its key female figures, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Helen Frankenthaler, and Elizabeth Murray. Moyer’s work has been exhibited throughout the US and Europe for over 25 years. Her paintings were featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Previous museum shows include a traveling survey, Carrie Moyer: Pirate Jenny, that originated at the Tang Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY (2013); and Interstellar, at the Worcester Art Museum, MA (2012). Between 1991-2008, Moyer and photographer Sue Schaffner collaborated as Dyke Action Machine!, a public art project that humorously dissected mainstream advertising through the insertion of lesbian imagery. Moyer’s writing has appeared in magazines such as Art in America, Artforum, the Brooklyn Rail and monographs on Louise Fishman and Nancy Grossman. She has received awards from the Guggenheim and Joan Mitchell Foundations, Anonymous Was a Woman, and Creative Capital among others. Moyer attended Pratt Institute (BFA), Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College (MFA) and the Skowhegan School of Art. She is the Director of MFA Program in Studio Art at Hunter College. Moyer is represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York City.
