Rory Moorer About

Rory Moorer brings the phantasmagoria of public spectacles from far and wide to the painterly canvas. Rory's paintings can be viewed as if they were studies for murals, works clearly imagined for public spaces and meant to attract a broad and diverse viewership. His subjects range from the Spanish Boulevard of the Bulls to the all-American Sox vs. Stripes St. Jeter. He credits scholastic art programs with initially sparking his interest in art and hopes to give back to the community by conjuring approachable and populist images. When asked how his background contributes to his work as an artist, Rory says he 'looks at situations and environments that [he] hadn't actually experienced through an outsiders approach,' and this in turn allows him to have a fresh perspective. Adding an illustrator's talent for humor and a vibrant panache for graphic style, Rory D.L. Moorer paints paintings that transform the gallery experience into something as engaging as 'a day at the ballpark.' Add Comment
