ARTIST JOHN MOORE TO CONDUCT “THE ARTIST’S EYE” GALLERY TALK AT THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM

FORT WORTH—Fort Worth artist John Moore will present a gallery talk in the Kimbell Art Museum’s “Artist’s Eye” series on Saturday, May 16, at 11 a.m. The Kimbell’s curator for Asian and non-Western art, Jennifer Casler Price, will moderate this free program. Moore was Director of Fine Arts at Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, from 1989 through 2008. Over the past two years he has produced a series of 15 monotypes from an intaglio base and has been commissioned to create several works utilizing the motif of the ocotillo plant. On view for his talk will be a recently completed, large painting entitled “Bernoulli's Mandala,” which is partially based upon the work of the early-19th-century mathematician and physicist Daniel Bernoulli, whose studies with fluid dynamics led directly to man’s ability to fly. At the close of his talk, there will be a short musical performance utilizing Tibetan singing bowls and Western instruments that will demonstrate the merging of Eastern and Western aesthetics in this work. “The Artist’s Eye” is an ongoing program moderated by Kimbell staff. It brings Texas artists to the Museum to discuss works in the permanent collection, share the special insights of the practicing professional, and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own.
