The EACC Gallery presents At the Edge of Abstraction, an exhibition by artist Michelle Gunter Moore of Little Rock, Arkansas. The exhibit will run through Wednesday, January 31st.
Artist Michelle Gunter Moore is a multimedia artist and experiments with clay, canvas, and paper, allowing the visual dynamics surrounding her world to bias her media of choice. She observes the shape, color, tone, and texture to capture an abstract and expressionist view of her subject, and her work is often seen as contemplative, studious, and pensive.
Moore's intention is to capture the perception of emotion in a moment of time. She observes life around her and visits the past in photographs she has collected or taken. She rarely pays attention to the minor details of her subject as she prefers to let the body language, environment, and atmosphere convey the meaning of the work.
"Even from an early age, I can remember sitting on a bench in the mall of in a park under a tree, quietly observing the people and the environment around me. I feel that many of us do this, we are people watchers," said Moore. "We will create a personal relationship to those we observe, a narrative that tells a story that only we imagine. That is what I try to capture in my work," she added.
Michelle Gunter Moore is the co-owner of a small research based, bio-statistical consulting group and has been creating art since 1998. She is co-owner and managing partner with the Art Group Gallery in Little Rock, and her art studio is also located in Little Rock. Her work has been featured in many galleries and included in exhibits throughout the state of Arkansas.
