Shawna Moore is a contemporary American painter known for her subtle explorations of color. Her paintings are the product of an ongoing investigation into the nature of abstraction and the medium of painting itself.
"I make the kinds of artwork that I like to look at. When visiting galleries and museums, I am intrigued by art that I can’t quite figure out how it was made or how the artist came to such a simple and pure expression. That's what I aim for, technical prowess and a momentary capture of the sublime aspects of nature and my life as a thinking, feeling, creative person.
The challenge is to grow and evolve as an artist. My focus is painting, not just encaustic painting. Acknowledging the significance of growth and reinvention, I am looking at questions around sustaining a successful and evolving artistic practice."
