DESCRIPTION

John's Luv is a nearly 1,000 page handwritten and painted book, complete with 4 x 11 foot foldout painting. Alternately fiction, diary, mise-en-scene and metanarrative, this illustrated tale follows John's attempt to love better and more deeply those around him. Begun in 2003, this massive undertaking pursues answers to Moore's unremitting ambiguities and doubts relative to community, God, love and daily life. Andy Moore has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Moore's first show in Chicago was at Beret International, now defunct, and he has since shown in many local venues, including Kavi Gupta Gallery, TBA Exhibition Space, Western Exhibitions, and Dogmatic Gallery. Additionally, his work has been included in an exhibition at Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA.
