Sam Moyer – Openings in 2013 – Brussels
Sam Moyer will be in a group show in Brussels in November 2013 at Galerie Rodolphe Janssen.
“In her new body of work titled Breakers II, Sam Moyer works in a very sculptural physical way by overlapping painted glass and dyed canvas, combining abstraction and readymade while still loosely referencing the idea of landscape. The glass and the canvas are layered to create compositions physically reliant on the Neilsen frames that hold them together. Altough the techniques Sam Moyer is using in her work (glass painting, canvas dying,…) could be considered to be more in the field of craft, Moyer’s work manages to delude the viewers into thinking that they are looking at a traditional abstract painting. There is also a deceptive quality to the material, just like in Drescher’s work. You think you know what you are looking at until further inspection, then you realize their works are not what they appear.”
