Carrie Moyer, Arcana, at CANADA [Review]

Moyer seems to finish each of her paintings with a final layer of opaque, neutral color, implying that we see only carefully chosen glimpses of a larger setting.  These bubbling spotlights suggest MirĂ³, the very bottom layers O’Keefe, but the translucent, shimmering leaves between are harder to decipher.  As in past outings, she teases at figuration – are those breasts in Rebus, a monkey’s head in Tiny Dancer?  Moyer works more delicately here than she has in previous projects, glazing sections with sugary pinks, yellow and purples, and introducing glitter.  Because of that care, the dissonances that she sets cohere, which is probably why the best works here are a bit creepy: it’s unsettling to see mysteries this taut.

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
