Experiments, Excavations & Explorations
June 20 - July 20, 2019
Opening Reception: June 20, 6-8 pm (by RSVP only)
Robert Moore is an emerging artist with classical training in photography. Building on his successful 25-year career as a New York commercial photographer and overcoming a life-threatening illness has given him a powerful motivation as an independent artist to realize a new and singular expression in his work.
Educated at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, becoming a photojournalist in the US Navy, and apprenticing for years with photographers in Europe have all given Moore a technical mastery and attention to detail that informs his work today. As an artist, he uses this experience as the foundation on which he builds and creates the layers of color and medium that transform our perspective. Robert’s artistic expression emerges through the application of his fine craftsmanship. The subtly and detail of his work in combination with his creativity deliver a visual experience of profound observation.
Moore divides his time between Manhattan and his studio in the Hamptons. A Long Island native, he is deeply connected to the local land and shoreline, and chooses to work exclusively in these surroundings. Moore has shown his work in East End galleries, but he’s primarily interested in partnering with the medical community to promote the restorative power of art to help overcome difficult illness. Most notably, Moore has contributed numerous pieces of his work to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s permanent art collection in Manhattan as well as Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island.
