Born in Iowa and raised in Kansas, Gordon Moore began painting pictures at the age of 6 and has never stopped. Being a product of the Great Plains the dominant thematic in his work has long been informed by that experience and that environment and can be defined to this day quite simply as: Space. The creation of which, in an abstract Painting and Drawing idiom, is the fuel which drives his imagination. After finishing the Academic requirements of a formal education in Art, first at the University of Washington in Seattle and then at Yale in New Haven, he moved to the TRUE University of Art and Life In 1972: New York City, where he has lived ever since. In the ensuing years Moore' work has developed an interest in a refined clarity of edge vaguely redolent of Architectonic space as well as fragments of shapes found from the street experience, most notably - the Bowery, close to which he has lived for nearly half a Century. His work has been most often shown in one-person showings since 2000 and he has received a number of awards and fellowships. Anita Rogers Gallery Photo Credit: Elizabeth Thompson
