On view this fall at New York City's Hirschl & Adler Modern is "After the Rain," a solo exhibition of thirteen recent paintings by John Moore. From the exhibition press release: "With these works, the artist reveals the vestiges of industry around his adopted-home state of Maine and places a marked emphasis on the landscape which seeks to reclaim them. Moore’s luminous handling of land, sky and water opens the space beyond his signature depictions of factory windows and bridges and, with this heightened atmosphere, recalls the rich tradition of American landscape painting. To assume these paintings are about the continuing decline of industry limits their reach. These paintings are about the beauty and quiet power of the true American landscape—one of cyclical growth and intervention between man and nature."
This exhibition is accompanied by a 24-page catalogue, with 13 full-color illustrations and an essay by Christopher Crosman, founding Chief Curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, and Director Emeritus of the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine.
