“I consider my work to be a form of visual communication using simplicity and depth to express social and ethical issues. My goal is to create a conversation between both the personal and public by using color and composition to express mood, situation and ideas.” – Carl E. Moore

Featured Artist

CARL E. MOORE

Carl E. Moore, best known for his vivid, high-contrast paintings was born in Canton, MS and now lives and works in Memphis, TN as an artist and designer. Carl attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Memphis College of Art where he received his BFA and MFA.

Carl uses media-based events as the primary theme of his work. By taking those situations and reducing them down to their most basic form, it allows him to direct the narrative. He uses color and content to redefine the conversation by developing a social connection between the characters and their environment. The color becomes an important part of that dialogue, and the content becomes part of the social statement.

In 2017 Carl received the seventh annual Emmett O’Ryan Award for Artistic Inspiration. Carl has recently won three additional extinguished artist awards, including the Pyramid Peak Foundation Art Acquisition, “People, Places and Scenes” Series, Race and Violence Exhibition in 2018, and the 2019-20 Tennessee Artist Fellow, and the Memphis Crosstown Visual Arts Residency Program award in 2020. Over Carl’s artistic career, he has held countless exhibitions within the state of Tennessee and Mississippi, receiving a ton of press, along with his art being published several times.
