New York-based artist Donald Moffett (b. 1955) emerged as both an artist and activist in the late 1980s, participating in the Act Up movement and as a founding member of the Gran Fury Collective. Dedicated to abstraction and the monochrome, Moffett challenges the traditional flat frame through non-traditional painting techniques, employing a private language of form that serves as a carrier for both personal and political meaning. Moffett often treats the canvas as a surrogate for the body, creating orifices by cutting and flaying or perforating the canvas. The resulting compositions are provocative and poetic, hinting at playfulness, all the while serving as an implicit form of social critique.
