David Moore's reputation in Boston is built on exhibitions of glowing reductive paintings that have a beautiful nuanced surface. He earned his MFA degree in painting at Bard College, NY, where he also studied Theosophy, Sufism, music, photography, and the luminist paintings of the Hudson Valley. He has received residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Millay Colony, Blue Mountain Center, the Edward F. Albee Foundation in Montauk, NY, and the Ballinglen Art Center in Ballycastle, County Mayo, Ireland. Most recently David received the prestigious Pollock/Krasner Award.; and a Painting Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. His most recent works are inspired by the landscape of Ireland while in residence at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation. David's musical experience has also influenced his paintings. For the past 35 years he has revived the lost art of playing the Musical Saw. He performs and records across the country, and has been featured at Boston Symphony Hall, on 'The Today Show', and NPR performing jazz, blues, folk, and alternative music.
