Sandra Moore

This Happened

November 12 - November 25, 2018

Sandra studied art and filmmaking at Yale and made experimental films composed of many drawings. The artist went on to teach at Cooper Union in NYC and showed her work in the United States and Europe.

However, she was simultaneously drawn to the study of medicine and went on to practice as a physician. She states that the art of medicine has been beautiful and fulfilling, although the rigors of medicine precluded time for reverie and art making.

In 2015, Sandra was able to return to making art.

"At a recent opening at the RE Institute in Millerton NY, someone next to me described Sandra Moore's recent paintings succinctly:  "Put on your seatbelts!"  And the warning was accurate.  To say she isn't easy is an understatement. In a cultural landscape of too many works that rely on gimmicks and visual shticks, hers stand out as visionary, disturbing, mysterious, and honest. Moore's current studies and paintings visualize the subjugation of indigenous people, brown tragic figures embroiled with white, almost spongy invaders. Their struggle is embedded in images of visceral pain, coils of gorgeous translucent snakes, shards of exploding color, and fabulous menacing cats. Moore says these are "political" paintings, but they go far deeper than facile polemics.  Here is the Manichean struggle, chaotic and agonizing, that lays the foundation of all dark political times.  Tough to look at but relevant, important".  Carol Peckham, Hudson NY, May 2018.
