Wairarapa born Michael Moore grew up looking at the land and has never stopped. As an artist he is passionately connected to the New Zealand landscape and through his work he aims to express its unique effects.
Moore works in both oil and acrylic, each medium offers him differing qualities which he enjoys applying to different subjects.
Moore aims to express his deep connection to the New Zealand landscape through his artwork. His paintings are an ongoing story and visual diary of this passion and he often produces a series of paintings on the same subject.
Regular study trips to the USA and UK have added international influences to his work; the minimalism of Georgia O'Keeffe and the perspective experimentation of David Hockney are particular favourites.
Michael Moore's acrylic and oil paintings appear in private and public collections around the world. He has exhibited nationally for almost 30 years.
