Biography

John Matthew Moore is a botanical artist with a fresh approach to this well know genre. Moore's medium of choice is the velvety, chalk enriched watercolour known as gouache, with which he excels in the mastery of colour and attention to detail. The opaque pigments of gouache enable Moore to achieve stunning effects ranging from light shining through petals to the deep, dark, rich tones of his red tulips.

Although the inspiration for his works is drawn from 17th and 18th century botanical and classical works of art, Moore's own vision is evident. His paintings are larger than life, seeming to explode off of the page while maintaining their scientific integrity, resulting in a photo-realistic effect.

Moore's paintings are displayed in many prominent international private and public collections due to representation in London, Beverly Hills, New York, Washington, DC, and Atlanta. In addition, his works have been placed in prestigious show homes including Southern Accents 2000 Capital Design House in Washington, DC (Barry Dixon, designer), the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's Design House, (Franya Waide, designer) and the 2008 Holiday Show House in New York City, (Kelly Proxmire, designer) to name a few.
