Snowlines: Emily Moore

9 - 25 November 2018

Emily Moore combines mountainous sceneries and architectural structures, building up detailed layers on wooden panels, while retaining the natural texture of the material beneath. Moore's work explores the tension between these natural and man-made elements, looking to strike a balance within the final composition.

 

Under Moore's brush, the less desirable, stark concrete ski resorts become aesthetically pleasing structures, with their modernist motifs working in harmony with alpine landscapes. The resulting works recall the graphic quality of paintings of American Pop Art artist Ed Ruscha.
