Carrie Moyer (Detroit, 1960) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She is known for her lavish abstractions: her paintings explore and extend the legacy of American Abstraction, while paying tribute to many of its crucial female figures, such as Helen Frankenthaler and Georgia O’Keeffe. Moyer’s work proposes a new approach to combining history, research and experimentation in painting, with her references to Colour Field painting, Pop Art and 1970s Feminist art. Influenced by a background in design and queer activism, she carefully merges concept, research and lived experience with different stylistic and visual references in her work.

Moyer’s work has been presented at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, CA (2024); Shah Garg Foundation, New York (2023); Madragoa, Lisbon (2022); Museum of Arts and Design, New York (2021); Portland Museum of Art (2020); Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus (2019); Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines (2019); Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Johnson County Community College, Overland Park (2019);  Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver (2019); Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus (2018); Whitney Biennial 2017, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2017); Brooklyn Museum, New York (2015), The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs (2013), among others.
