Eric Sutphin reviews the exhibition Carrie Moyer: Canonical at CANADA Gallery, New York, on view through October 16, 2011.

Sutphin writes: " Moyer's in-your-face compositional structures influenced by her engagement with agitprop and interest in Constructivist design give way to a kind of ambiguous space that feels extra terrestrial. These paintings are slow reads, petri dishes of biomorphic form suspended in agar. They reward patience and curiosity, no one-liners here."
