Clarity Haynes reviews Carrie Moyer: Sirens which waas recently on view at DC Moore Gallery, New York.

Haynes concludes: "Despite Moyer’s many influences and art historical references, her work does not look like anyone else’s. She is creating new territory and forging her own language in paint. A kind of deep, bodily theatrics are at play in these smart, masterful paintings. It’s hard to leave the gallery—the works literally cajole the viewer to stay. Sirens gives more than it asks: it is fundamentally generous. This is a big, beautiful party to which we’re all invited."
