Artist Greg Moore will unveil new work at an art show at Arsaga’s at the Depot this month.
Moore’s paintings are currently on display at the restaurant, and will remain up through March 3.
According to his artist statement, Moore’s work typically begins by rummaging through salvage yard and dumpsters in search of discarded objects to paint on. He then takes those objects – that would otherwise be occupying landfills – and turns them into unique works of art.
“As I paint I let the characteristics that attract me to the piece guide my painting, overlaying imagery that integrates and honors the character of the found object,” Moore said.
Moore was a Fayetteville resident and active member of the local art scene through the 2000s. He recently returned to Little Rock, Arkansas after living in the Bay Area of California for three years.
His work has appeared in several publications, including New American Paintings and TruthOut.org.
An artist reception for Moore is scheduled for 6 p.m. tonight (Thursday, Feb. 7).
