Biography

Gordon Moore received his undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, Seattle in 1970 and then went on to receive his MFA from Yale University in 1972. As an abstract painter Moore is inspired by his surroundings. Moore imparts substantial dimension into his paintings by working on photo emulsion paper to combine abstractions within a photographic space. Moore has received numerous awards and grants including the National Endowment for the Arts-Visual Artists Fellowship, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award in Painting, the Adolph and Ester Gottlieb Foundation Award in Painting, the Academy Award in Art from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant.
