The vibrant exhibition "Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times" at the Museum of Art and Design will be on display on February 13th, celebrating the formal vision and feminist politics of two abstract artists. Colors, and materials in craft shops—and life. The painter Moyer and the sculptor Pepe have been married for 25 years. They got married in 2015 and met in Skowhegan, an art residence in Maine. (The exhibition originated from the Portland Museum of Art.) Moyer's glitter and acrylic canvas-a mandala-like translucent painting, a reasonable comparison with Helen Frankenthaler and Georgia O'Keeffe-see The ecstasy, as always, is both watery and pyrotechnic. In Pepe's rhizome network composed of yarn, rope, hardware and rope, the art of domestic crochet has become the superpower of sculpture. If the highlight of the show is their personal work, then imagine the couple’s collaboration as a generous host hosting a party; the well-known lampshade is to pay tribute to the 90-year-old pioneer Lee Bontecou, ​​whose artistic goal is "no obstacles" -Without boundaries-free in any sense". The unfettered core here is the 2019 "People's Living Room", a hybrid of lounge and refuge, equipped with textiles and furniture, under luxurious, anti-traditional clouds.
