Robert Stephen Moore is a creative, pop-art, impressionist painter whose work focuses on a unique and colorful view of the familiar. His vivid acrylic paintings offer slices of primary colors applied strategically, though approximately, often giving a realistic, portrait-like feel.

Drawing upon a wide variety of inspirational life and work experiences, Robert takes us on a tour of his "Boomer" view of the world. Working in traditional genres such as portraiture, still life and landscape, his paintings are inspired by images coming from memories and photographs of the culture, economics and politics of his childhood, growing up in the '60s and '70s, and his current experiences living on his farm in New Hampshire and other world-travels.

Robert's background and education is in the scientific sideof Geography, particularly Cartography and satellite image processing. In theearly 1970's, he was one of the first users of sophisticated computer modelingsoftware for developing remotely-sensed satellite maps. He worked for over 30years as a consultant and entrepreneur, developing computerized mapping systemsand databases, and was utilizing newly created computer color/image processingto accomplish this work. Geography is all about space, and the map is a way torepresent the texture of the human condition. These are manifested as lines,shapes, values, colors and forms. Robert reaches deep into his experience withcomputer graphics and image processing to help him visualize the subjects hepaints. He experiments with image/color density slicing, quantization andgeneralization, arriving at a color palette that uniquely defines what he paints. He sometimes adds asculpted surface to his canvas that provides depth and the feeling of extremeimpasto,  as well as the look of paintingon a plaster wall.

Robert works daily in his seaside home studio in Stuart, Florida and an apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina in the winter and, as chores permit, on his farm in New Hampshire in the summer.
