Larry Moore: Sensu Naturae May 17 2012
Exhibition dates: May 5 - 26, 2012
Opening: Saturday, May 5, 4-7 pm
Artist’s Talk: Friday, May 11 at 11 am
This May, Arts on Douglas Fine Art and Collectibles in Smyrna Beach, FL will be featuring an exhibition that captures the natural splendor of Florida in “Larry Moore: Sensu Naturae”.
With subjects painted in natural light, Moore conveys the sensory experience of being outdoors: the sounds, the smells, temperature, wind, and the challenges of color and design.
“To paint the great outdoors is to give homage to nature and maybe give the viewers of my paintings a reminder of what was and what could still be.” say Moore.
Moore’s love of nature was first influenced by his Florida childhood home that was situated on a river right next to the ocean, surrounded by a vast preserve of islands and wildlife.
Beginning his career in illustration, Larry has worked in almost every medium and style. His passion settled on painting en plein air, a French expression which means "in the open air", during the mid-80′s. “The direction chose me”, says Moore, “and it is more for the experience of nature and the process of creating in it than anything else”.
On his new works Moore states, “This form of art has taken me to many magnificent places; my desire is to share these experiences.”
An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, May 5, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Larry Moore will give an Artist’s Talk on Friday, May 11 at 11 am. Both events are free and open to the public. The exhibition “Sensu Naturae” will be on display until May 26, 2012. Works by Larry Moore may be viewed online at www.artsondouglas.net.
