Dieu Donné is pleased to announce Carrie Moyer as our 2016 Paper Variable Artist!
A new variable edition in handmade paper by Carrie Moyer, a painter, writer and activist living in Brooklyn. Ms. Moyer is widely known for her abstract paintings in which layers of media, as well as concept, research, and experience, are intermingled to sumptuous effect.
In the Artforum review of Moyer's recent exhibition "Sirens" at DC Moore Gallery, Johanna Fateman described her work as "rich with allusions to abstractionist history, especially Helen Frankenthaler's pour paintings and central-core imagists of 1970s, while also reflecting Pop and countercultural styles". The artist's work is included in many public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Worcester Art Museum, and the Tang Museum, Skidmore College. Moyer is represented by DC Moore Gallery and has received awards from the Guggenheim and Joan Mitchell Foundations, Anonymous Was a Woman, and Creative Capital among others.
