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