(Born 1946) Moore was born in Chico, California, receiving his BFA and MFA in Painting from the Art Center at the Pasadena College of Design in 1974.
Moore's first New York solo exhibition took place in 1985. Since then his work has appeared in approximately 100 group or solo exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States.
Moore's paintings are known for triggering a sense of peace. His humble objects are treated life size based on his direct observation in natural light. Traditional still life, and yet Moore conveys more with his muted palette, often punctuated by a single color. "Painted poetry" is another way to summarize his art.
Permanently hosting Moore's paintings are: the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, Achenbach Foundation, San Francisco; Oakland Museum in California; San Jose Museum of Art in California; the Tacoma Art Museum in Washington; the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the Hunter Museum of Art in Chattanooga, Tennessee to name a few.
