With a background in photography, Sam Moyer makes works that are monochromatic, modular, and rooted in geometry, with a focus on texture, pattern, and tactility. Moyer has also become well known for using dyed and crumpled stretches of fabric that she mounts onto wood panels by ironing. These pieces frequently have subtle patterns created using bleach and ink.
