Sam Moyer – Blanket Works 

When considering works by Sam Moyer, one typically thinks of her works from 2010 and up to 2013. 

There are how ever some works from the period 2008-2009 that are also very interesting.  

Sam started making the moving blanket works in 2008 and has continued revisiting the material throughout the Greater New York Show and after. She showed a really gritty blanket triptych at PS1. 

They follow the same structure as the bleached canvas works and instinctually follow the line with a clear horizon/cropping, folding, and also referencing the tradition of the readymade and the monochrome.

The scale and pattern of the blankets also relate to Sam’s love of Agnes Martin’s paintings and the play of pattern that emerges in these readymade forms.
