Stone Works

samauthor Sam Moyer, publisher Triangle Books, edition of 500 copies, 40 pp., 27.3 x 22.2 cm, 2016

This publication is the first monograph dedicated to Sam Moyer’s stone works. Through counterposing objects such as broken marble slabs, bronze, found and dyed fabrics, Moyer’s works undulate in both their sense of materiality and history. In contextualizing the materials into the language of painting, Moyer not only fuses painting and sculpture, but in doing so, allows for the raw materials to resonate as minimalist forms. Once components of functioning structures, these compressions become formal works: emphasizing their form and color, layered metaphors of an architectural space.
