Bio and Statement

My Name is Carl E. Moore and I was born 1965 in Canton, Mississippi. I currently live and work in Memphis, Tennessee as an artist and designer. I attended the Chicago Art Institute and the Memphis College of Art where I received my BFA and MFA.

My work is a form of visual communication using simplicity and depth to express current, social and economic conditions. I use everyday life as my content, and create a connection between both the personal and the public by manipulating color and composition to express mood, situation and setting.
My process combines complex situations with simple forms and figures to create a dialogue that express a specific idea and/or concept, based on the subject matter.

Some of my early influences were artist Jacob Lawrence, Stuart Davis, Salvador Dali, Michelangelo, Charles White and John Biggers.
