John Moore

Rooted in the intricate tapestry of shamanic visions and altered states of consciousness, the artist brings forth luminous portraits of human and animal spirits using oil, acrylic, and mixed media. Each piece begins long before paint meets canvas, with preparatory rituals grounded in meditation guiding their hand to reveal spiritual realities often obscured from ordinary sight. This luminosity symbolizes the profound spiritual essence visible to shamans yet veiled to most.

Coming from a lineage adorned with award-winning painters, quilters, and craftsmen, the artist carries forward a legacy that finds resonance in the portraits they craft. Their eclectic experiences in TV, film, and photography have endowed them with an intuitive grasp of form, light, and composition. As a perpetual experimenter, they are not bound by medium alone, constantly evolving their exploration from crafting their own inks using age-old techniques to creating paints.

A frequent reflection from viewers is on the arresting gaze of the eyes in the artist's portraits, intentionally designed to connect, engage, and communicate. It's a testament to art's communicative power, where the spirit within the piece resonates with the observer's heart. However, the journey has its challenges as visionary experiences, much like dreams, are ephemeral and often formless. Translating the depth of these immersive experiences onto a two-dimensional plane has been a dance of experimentation. But in each piece, the artist's intention remains - to illuminate the spiritual world beneath the surface and beckon the viewer to glimpse their own radiant spirit.

For those looking to add a touch of spiritual essence to their home or office decor, the artist's prints are a captivating choice. Each piece brings forth a luminous portrait that resonates with the viewer, inviting them to connect with the spiritual realities often hidden from plain sight. Don't miss the opportunity to bring a piece of shamanic inspiration into your space with these captivating prints.
