Nigel Moores


Statements can and do change. Clearly they can never explain the work but simply offer a particular context.
Although my work is open to interpretation, it is held together by a common thread ; namely the relationship between the intentional and the unintentional. I often attempt to make the  intentional look unplanned and the unintentional appear deliberate.
My paintings are arrived at by a process of action and reaction.
I actively seek the accident and the subconscious when painting, in order to avoid the predictable. There is a dialogue between intentional and the unintentional, between the artist and each composition, which leads the work forward. It is this dialogue that I hope makes for a layered and surprising piece.
