Biography

Although an abstract painter, Gordon Moore classifies himself as an empiricist. Inspired by his surroundings Moore creates paintings and drawings in which he merges sight (his observations) and philosophy. His works on photo emulsion paper combine the drawing mark or line with a photographic space. Similarly, although with no use of photographs or collage, his paintings give both a sense of depth and a visual complexity by marrying dimensional space with flat surface, directional lines with incidental marks, as in Untitled (Crank) (2012).
