Sam Moyer

1201 S La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90019

Sam Moyer is an American artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Moyer’s practice has evolved from its more conceptual and process-based origins to address formal and theoretical issues regarding the construct of painting. In all her production, issues of scale and space are critical, and Moyer is particularly interested in the way architecture functions in tandem with her objects to create dynamic visual experiences. Uniting found textures and objects in innovative ways, Moyer manipulates them into beautifully abstract formal works that provoke a new, expanded artistic vocabulary. Continuing the artist’s ongoing interest in the tension between painting and sculpture, this body of work includes Moyer’s 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.

Painting

1201 S La Brea Ave

July 11, 2020 - September 5, 2020
Kayne Griffin Corcoran is pleased to present "Painting," a group show bringing together nine artists with a focus on painterly practices. Each artist will be represented by one work in the exhibition. While the majority of the exhibiting artists have creative output that expands beyond the application of paint, this exhibition focuses on the various ways this medium is used. The arc of painting is as wide as the genesis of every painting, though most paintings begin with the decision to use paint. Secondary decisions revolve around representation, abstraction, the sculptural, use of materials, flatness, depth, the gestural, minimalism, addition, subtraction…it goes on. Painting can be a painting or it can be a performance. It can behave as paint or it can perform tasks other than simply being a painting. The origin of this exhibition came during the stay-at-home mandate when an intense urge to look at a Blinky Palermo painting in person came over me. I was certainly not the only one who had this desire to look at paint on canvas. I spoke to many colleagues and it was painting that we all wanted to spend time with. The innate physical reaction to looking and confronting a painting. The ability to pick it apart, dissect it and put it back together is something that can only happen in the presence of the actual painting. The gallery will soon be open by appointment and visitors will have this opportunity to inspect the many different ways these nine artists have chosen to battle with paint.
