These things don’t just come to you, I mean. What I mean is…. They do. They’re given. But I didn’t want them for the longest time. In fact, I rejected them like I thought you had to. It felt good to not need them. But, now these old lovers seem to bring pause. I hated them for this. I didn’t want to have to pay respect to their genesis. That’s behind me now. Flipped and turned, mirrored and then remade. Becoming from bits and pieces. These are incomplete sentences made into different incomplete sentences. Broadened and flattened.
Moore's new work has been abstracted from a select group of Picasso and Mattisse paintings from the collection of The Art Institute of Chicago, finding new motifs then expanding upon them further. Moore is also a gallerist who co-runs EBERSMOORE gallery right around the corner from our gallery.
