OPPOSITES ATTRACT |
New Plymouth artist, Harry Moores, creates large scale contemporary portraits that blend representation with automatic text. Working in black and white his paintings are both striking and intriguing.
Moores aims to find a meeting point between two opposites in his art, referencing the multitude of dualistic principles that exist in our world. These paintings present a unique tension when viewed up close and from a distance, offering both a macro and micro experience.
In one recent work, Moores captures an iconic woman- former (now retired) NASA astronaut and American chemist, Dr Anna Lee Fisher. Fisher is one of the first female astronauts selected by NASA. Depicted in her helmet she looks outward, an aspirational image that reflects on space discovery and woman's role in it.
