Seismic Shuffle, Carrie Moyer

The Carrie Moyer show at Mary Boone was a master class in painted surfaces. Acrylic paint and glitter pour, slide, and ooze across the surface in a body of work that shifted between high gloss and extra matte surfaces.  The compositions felt simultaneously sophisticated and light as air.  The extra matte surfaces allowed Moyer to create a new level of pictorial space, almost Matisse like, and to revel in formal issues and the pleasure that can be derived from them.
