Art Work by Hugh Moore

I started drawing before I started grade school. Privately tutored by John Gunnar Carlander, a graduate of the University of Chicago, I was encouraged to take classical technique in new directions. These paintings are oil on canvas and created using techniques that include developing layers of coloring to achieve some new and unique tones. I call my stylistic approach "sur-ruralism," a combination of empirical reality and imagination, often placed in a Midwestern rural backdrop.

Hugh was Artist-In-Residence for November 2012 at the Vachel Lindsay Home, 603 S. Fifth Street, Springfield, IL. At the artist reception, Hugh premiered a new song in tribute to Vachel Lindsay's birthday. Listen to the song, "Rhymes to be Traded for Bread" on the music page.
