Now through August 19, 2012, the Worcester Art Museum (WAM) presents Interstellar, a survey of canvases of Carrie Moyer’s work from the past decade.

Moyer’s painting process includes pouring, patterning, staining, and drawing, utilizing layers of contrasting stylistic, color, and spatial relationships. Her recent work seems to combine elements of body and landscape painting, integrating the flatness of design with the depth of space of more traditional painting.

Carrie Moyer’s painting practice over the past two decades has been shaped by her identification with the radicalism of art, politics, and feminism of the 1960s-1970s, as well as her formal training in both painting and computer graphic design. She received a BFA in painting from Pratt (1985), a MA in computer graphic design from New York Institute of Technology (1990), and a MFA in painting from Bard (2001). She is on the faculty of Hunter College and lives and works in Brooklyn.

In addition, the Worcester Museum of Art will present an Artist’s Talk featuring Carrie Moyer on Thursday, April 19 at 6pm in the Higgins Education Wing Conference Room.
