Birdsong: Robert Moore
This exhibition affirms the artists fascination with birds, living and working in the bush they are a constant in the landscape.
Robert Moore has spent the past 20-odd years living and working off grid' in the bush in Northern NSW. He works either from his outdoor studio, or in various plein air locations around the Clarence Valley.
His painting style is dependent on mood and environment, from hungry, robust applications to seize the light and landscape, to nuanced geometric layers revealing texture and shade, Moore handles paint in the spirit of the occasion.
This exhibition affirms his fascination with birds;
"My fascination with birds continues.
They are beautiful beings to paint.
Wonderful shapes, great colours.
Living and working in the bush they are a constant in the landscape.
When I paint birds I paint the landscape.
I like the idea of a suite of bird paintings in the upstairs gallery.
Its like they are perched above us, existing in their own place, inviting us to walk amongst them".
