Rich Moyers Fine Artist

Creating a Beyond Visual Experience

My primary desire is to encourage a fluid discourse between a work's latent intent, and the viewers perceptions, resulting in a contemplative dialog beyond the picture plane.

Seeking the essence of each new work, a process of "pre-visualization" occurs. Ideas, reactions, perceptions and influences are continually refined to illuminate an emotive resonance.

This intensive melding of physical and subconscious energies forms a "graphic shorthand" of harmonic coloration, and proportional balance so that.... Lines, Shapes, and Colors, can be felt as much as seen.

METHODOLOGY

Most of Rich's paintings require many painstaking hours of carefully applied applications, working layer upon layer, in varying Mixed Media combinations, to accomplish his exceptional luminously vibrant effects, using Oil & Acrylic Paints, Pastels, Gouache, and Watercolors on Fine Handmade Papers, Linens, and Canvas.

Decades of experimental explorations allow Rich to skillfully manipulate the natural properties of “Fluid Viscosity”. He uses these dynamic “push-pull” effects to enhance dimensional drama and heighten tactile surface qualities.

"During the execution of each new work, I often make impulsive additions, sparks of intuitive spontaneity, capturing the creative “magic” of each progressive discovery. Translating these compelling sensations of inspired tension is my primary goal."

For more than 35 years, RICH MOYERS has been successfully creating engaging artworks with thoughtful, energetic, and emotionally stimulating content using his natural affinity for proportional harmony and exceptional color balance. Rich's award winning Contemporary Paintings are held in many corporate and private collections.... (see below)
