Robert Moore is a colorblind ambidextrous, simultaneous painter with vibrant, energetic, expressive impasto works displaying his mastery of color!
“He has learned to orchestrate color progressions using value relationships, rather than specific colors, to create a pleasing result. It’s like with a song – what’s important is not so much which key you’re in but the relationship between notes,” he says. “You can start with any color as a ‘tonic chord,’ and as long as you keep those colors in a certain relationship with each other, it still feels like natural color.” – Gussie Fauntleroy
“My work is a search for an effect of light, founded upon a simple design, using small pieces of harmonious color sitting within the appropriate mass value. I use many different tools in order to achieve a variety of shapes and surfaces. The tools vary from fingers to brushes, palette knives, trowels, rags, squeegees, large house-painting brushes, and my secret kitchen-spatula tool.” – Robert Moore
While Darcie Peet’s love of nature and all it encompasses is evident throughout her body of work.
Originally exposed to the west from family vacations, Darcie was eager to return as an adult and attended Colorado College before making a name in her own right as an established artist.
As Norman Koplas notes, “The scenes themselves are iconic in their depiction of peaks, glades, meadows, and rugged escarpments. The lighting offers dynamic interplays of sunshine and shadow, conjuring the feeling of serenity you feel so often at dawn or dusk. The colors are lushly saturated yet realistic, as if distilling what the eye naturally sees. And the lively brush strokes convey a sense not only of nature’s movement, through the rustling of grasses or the rush of clouds across the sky, but also of the inner surge of emotions such vistas evoke.”
Darcie was recently featured in the May issue of Southwest Art Magazine.
