An artist dialog on Urban Natives, a new exhibit featuring the work of Boise artist Bryan Moore, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 7 at The Gallery at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise’s Linen District. Admission is free. Refreshments, including beer and wine, will be available on Dec. 7. The Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays.
Urban Natives is a collection of Moore’s work incorporating oi…l, acrylic, house paint, oil stick, spray paint and mixed media on canvas, pallets, doors and other found boards. The exhibit will run through Dec. 19.
“Bryan’s paintings weave together colorful images of tribal symbols and urban elements that work seamlessly with one another,” said The Gallery Owner David Hale. “His bold, graphic style brings together the modern, pop-surrealist influences while touching on his extensive travels and experiences. Bryan’s work will invite the mind to discover the relationship between Native American art and the fabric of our urban culture.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Bryan Moore (http://www.facebook.com/bryan.a.moore) is a native of Boise. His father descends from several generations of Nevada pioneers, ranchers and buckaroos. His mother’s family has been in Idaho for six generations and was among the early pioneers of Idaho.
During the 1990s, Moore traveled extensively, visiting Australia, Hawaii, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico, Canada, Panama, Colombia, Curacao, Cuba, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain and much of the continental United States while in the service of the U.S. Navy.
Moore graduated with honors from Boise State in 2007 with a BFA in Illustration, a minor in Visual Arts and an emphasis in Art History.
While at Boise State, he was President of the Native American student organization (Intertribal Native Council), President of Golden Key International Honour Society and a member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. He has been independently studying Native American and South Pacific arts and cultures for many years.
Moore is currently working in oil, acrylic and mixed media on both traditional canvas and found objects such as used doors, pallets and scrap plywood.
“Moore displays his ‘jack-of-all’ media tendencies with paintings in oil and acrylic, prints and tribal jewelry. The artist himself says his work leans toward ‘the intuitive application of symbols to express meaning,’ which often translate into critiques on society and spiritual expression.” — Boise Weekly
