LOS ANGELES, CA.- Kayne Griffin Corcoran
announced representation of artist Sam Moyer.
The artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery, Flowers, is currently on view through July 6th 2019. Kayne Griffin Corcoran will also be presenting new work by Moyer at West Bund Art and Design which runs from November 7th to the 10th 2019 in Shanghai, China.
Born in Chicago in 1983, Sam Moyer received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design and an MFA from Yale School of Art. Moyers work abstracts the languages of painting and sculpture through a diverse practice that draws inspiration from architectural space and natural materials. If a piece balances the physical density of sculpture while echoing the speed or lightness of a drawing, it is an experiential success for me, says Moyer. Over the past five years, the artist has embraced the tension between mediums through the process of fitting repurposed stone into hand painted canvas mounted to MDF panel. The assembled compositions are improvisational and retain both the lightness and physical density the artist seeks out.
Moyer lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Moyer has exhibited widely in the US and internationally at such places as 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 also 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, Queens, and in 2018 she was the subject of a solo presentation at Art Basel Unlimited. Moyers works are 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.
In addition to Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Los Angeles, Sam Moyer is represented by Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, NY and Galerie Rodolphe Janssen, Brussels, Belgium.
