Carrie Moyer consciously centres her painting as a practice about painting, with history as a subtext. Known for her incursions into Colour Field painting, Moyer also traces her influences to iconic female artists of the twentieth century, such as Georgia O Keeffe, and surrounding questions of taste, once quipping of her paintings that [Helen] Frankenthaler and [Fernand] Leger met in a dark corner and had Elizabeth Murray. Moyer s complex work merges abstract aesthetics and legible imagery: vividly coloured and textured forms are embedded with a range of historical, stylistic, and physical references to Surrealism, Modernism, 1960s and 70s counterculture graphics, and 70s feminist art. Moyer often works on the floor, pouring, rolling, stippling, mopping the paint, and embellishing with glitter. An exploration of acrylic s unique properties is a driving force in her work. Beginning as an intern at HERESIES, the pioneering feminist art magazine, Moyer has also engaged in critical practices beyond the studio. This monograph enriches a deep dive into Moyer s painting practice, in particular her work of the past decade, with a portfolio of the artist s agitprop from the 1990s, including Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!), one of the first lesbian public art projects.
