Carrie Moyer discusses her career and work in an extensive interview with Phong Bui.
Moyer notes: "...even though I am naturally more comfortable making big paintings, the smaller ones have been a way for me to get ideas out on the canvas without giving into my tendency to overwork the surface. I have been interested in creating a seamless surface, a kind of inevitability, and I don't like having so much of the pentimenti show from underneath. That is starting to change in the new work and the paint surfaces are becoming much more built up, almost sculptural."
Carrie Moyer: Canonical will be on view at CANADA gallery, New York from September 14 - October 16, 2011.
