Sam Moyer

Sam Moyer has created a very diverse and multidisciplinary oeuvre by using a broad variety of industrial and natural materials such as rough cast-off marble, painted glass, metal, and delicate hand-dyed fabric. She manipulates these materials into abstract compositions with great attention for texture, pattern and tactility. Moyer’s work challenges the traditional boundaries of painting and sculpture, often combining them into compelling hybrids, in order to create dynamic visual experiences.
