Carrie Moyer

Associate Professor of Art, Painting

Carrie Moyer is a painter who writes. She has exhibited nationally and internationally for over 20 years. Her essays and reviews have appeared in Art in America, Artforum, Brooklyn Rail and Modern Painters. Moyer is the recipient of numerous awards including the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, Anonymous Was A Woman Award as well as a Creative Capital Grant. She is represented by CANADA Gallery in New York City. 

Critic Martha Schwendener has written about Moyer’s work: 

 "Painting is a neurotically self-conscious medium—it's always looking over its shoulder, responding to earlier eras and earlier ideas. Carrie Moyer puts that self-consciousness at the center of her work. But where mash-ups of different periods and styles have become popular with post-postmodern painters (and often end up looking like conceptual train wrecks), her canvases are cool, seamless—almost alchemical.

Slipping between abstract and representational, the raw canvases are built up with strata of translucent and opaque color, positive and negative shapes, and solids and silhouettes that reference different historical periods: ancient fertility figures with bulging hips; vases with breasts circling their perimeters; murky blobs that recall the paintings of biomorphic Surrealism.”[1]

In 1991, Moyer founded Dyke Action Machine!, a public art project with photographer Sue Schaffner. DAM! was one of the first queer interventionist public art projects. Their campaigns dissected mainstream visual culture by inserting lesbian images into commercial contexts, revealing how lesbians are and are not depicted in American popular culture. The collaboration ran from 1991-2008.

Moyer attended Pratt Institute, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College. Before joining the faculty at Hunter in 2011, Moyer taught for a decade at a variety of institutions including the Rhode Island School of Design, Yale, Rutgers, Pratt and Cooper Union among others.
