Slowly by Sam Moyer at Galerie Rodolphe Jansen

While the Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based artist Sam Moyer has played around with fabric painted to look like marble in the past, the geometric panels suspended in gorgeous bronze armatures that she recently installed at Galerie Rodolphe Janssen in Brussels are, in fact, the real deal. Meant to interact with the space’s striking ceilings and the summer light that filters through them, the slabs are cut so thin as to be almost semi-translucent, a subverting of expectations about the way certain materials are supposed to look, feel, and function — a common theme in Moyer’s work, and one that will sound familiar to many designers, which is probably why we’ve found ourselves so drawn to her. Check out a ton of photos of the exhibition below, which also includes wall works combining canvases with marble insets, then check out this interview Moyer did with The Brooklyn Rail last summer to learn more about her process.
