In Moore’s work, the colors and lines of pivot irrigation whorls and ragged forest edges are heightened and transformed. They become color quilts, organic tendrils, marbled paper, the pulsing blood of a transparent body. The jostling of curve and color has transcended the merely real.

Teton landscapes, painted in the Alps, return home

Her style of painting lies somewhere between dreamlike and impressionist. Moore is drawn in particular to the softer lights of dawn and dusk in her paintings, and she typically starts the process of creating a piece by focusing on an image she is drawn to.”

AtLAS’ Popo Agie Gold project culminates with a ribbon cutting and art raffle

“The positioning of the panels on the wall will roughly correspond to the orientation of the watershed itself, with the left panels corresponding to agricultural areas to the east, and the right panels corresponding to the mountains to the west. So as community members wander down the Barney Riverwalk they will be able to immerse themselves in the journey of the watershed through Moore’s panels, as it flows beside them in reality.

CREATIVE PEAKS: Local Swagger

“Working from her own photographs of scenes, Moore paints in her studio, blending impressionism and photorealism. “I think of impressionism as being really brushy, but I tend to blend in my brushstroke,” she said. “My drawing style is evident.“”

Western Confluence: Editor’s Note

“Painter Virginia Moore’s landscapes bring these aerial views to ground level. Her pieces reconfigure our planet’s shapes and colors into bright abstractions. They also reveal our landscapes as they really are, not sentimentalized or pristine, but shaped by eons of water following gravity as well as decades of planning, labor, and construction. These images remind us of our power to alter the places we dwell, and of the smallness and fragility of our presence on this vast and ever-changing planet.”
