Abstract:

John Moore has been one of the leading realist painters of his generation since his first New York exhibit in 1969. His earliest works were still lifes of objects in his studio, involved with private space. These gradually shifted their focus as the artist added windows with glimpses of the outside world and then enlarged these until they took over the surface of the canvas and led to the public domain of the city beyond. Eventually Moore turned to city and suburban.

Views and industrial sites as his principal subjects. He thus evolved from contemplating the beauty of the world in its simplest manifestations to embracing it in all of its inexhaustible visual density. Inventing Reality: The Paintings of John Moore proves that realism is a viable option for a fine artist at the end of the twentieth century. In addition to a comprehensive essay by Therese Dolan, it features an illustrated chronology, lists of solo and group exhibitions.

List of public collections, bibliography, and index.
