Reception Friday Evening,
May 3, 2013, 5-8 pm
Lanning Gallery's exciting
Spring Season is in full swing bringing visits to the
gallery by notable national artists. This month
multiple-award-winning Expressive Realist painter Gerald
C. Moore introduces numerous new works.
Moore's style is not pointillism, though at first
glance that is often what viewers believe they see; nor
do his paintings actually mirror the realism of a
photograph, though his detail is spellbinding, instead
Moore's paintings, whether in oil or acrylic, capture an
attention to every detail that informs his
interpretation of a scene. "I am after the aesthetic
essence of things found outdoors," Moore explains,
"which make my paintings close to nature, but not copies
Moore simply observes landscapes with a passionate
eye for detail. "I'm after what moves you most deeply,"
he says. "I want people to go back to my work
continually and find things in them they didn't see
previously. … I use great detail … because major
characteristics of the landscape are its intricacy,
abundance, and chaos."
Moore's tremendous commitment of his vision and
skills has been honored repeatedly with top awards at
prestigious juried, and often double-juried,
exhibitions. See Moore's page on this website for
details on many of his 2012 and 2013 awards.
