Artist of the Month - February
Colin Moore - Carving
After 15 years of working as a model maker for film, television, theatre and museums, I have now returned back to my previous life as an artist. Picking up very near from where I had left of 15 years previously.
I began my first new work a little over a year and a half ago. The work begins first in modelling clay, a soft material. I then convert this to a hard material ‘car bog’. Working this to it’s finish. A second and final mould is made, and the finished work is cast from epoxy resin mixed with marble powder.
My influences in style are rooted in the classical: Greek & roman art. With secondary influences of Gothic and and socialist romanticism.
My ideas circle around the beauty and genius of human endeavour, and the gravity of the situation that we as modern humans are moving toward.
I call the work ‘Post Industrial Icons’.
