Kayne Griffin Corcoran is pleased to present new works by Sam Moyer. This series of paintings and works on paper is made visible through our online viewing room through May 13, 2020.

Continuing Sam Moyer’s ongoing interest in the tension between painting and sculpture, this body of work includes paintings that are made through a process of fitting repurposed stones into hand painted canvases. Within these works, Moyer responds to the quilts of Gee’s Bend. A longtime admirer of their work, she finds inspiration in the space between the intuitive and mathematical pattern making created by the quilters. While their use of repurposed materials mirrors Moyer’s own process, she is most interested in the independent, personal talent of the quilters that emerges amidst an inherited tradition of making.  

The works on paper are made with oil paint. The paper’s surface mimics the balance of reflective stone and light absorbing canvas used in Moyer’s wall works. The contrasting textures encourages the viewer’s eye to move around the drawing despite their two dimensional format.  

Sam Moyer’s works are included in prominent collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven; Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris; The Aïshti Foundation, Beirut; and the Davis Museum, Wellesley College, MA. Moyer has exhibited her work at The Drawing Center, New York; The Bass Museum, Miami, FL; University of Albany Art Museum, New York; The Public Art Fund, New York; White Flag Projects and The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, MO; LAND, Los Angeles; Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm; and Société, Berlin. Moyer has participated in important group exhibitions including, Inherent Structure, Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; Painting/Object, The FLAG Art Foundation, New York, NY; “Greater New York” and “Between Spaces” at PS1 Contemporary Art Center
