Featured Artist, Zeraph Dylan Moore is a returning guest artist for Pop Up beginning Tuesday, September 24 through Monday, September 30. Read on to learn more about his inspiration, his process, and his work.
September 24 to September 30
My artwork emulates industrial decay, archaeological artifacts, and processes of geologic change. As a child and teenager, I loved building things out of abandoned materials and exploring ruined houses and strange, forgotten places. I loved old things, deeply worn with texture and meaning.
In the past several years, I’ve become disabled with a chronic illness called CFS-ME. I no longer explore a lot of abandoned buildings and am mostly housebound. Much of my work is created in bed. For this reason, working at a small size – usually just 5” x 5” – is ideal.
My artwork has been represented in many private collections throughout Maine and the world since I was 16 years old.
Moore will be showing his work at Pop Up on Maine Art Hill at 5 Chase Hill Rd. in Kennebunk from June 12 to June 18. The gallery is open every day at 10 am. For more info about Moore and his work, follow this link to his website Grind Studio
