Professor Moores explores the social and political economies of everyday objects and our complex relationships to them. By relying on traditional and industrial methods of manufacturing, Moores literal and metaphoric “recasts” seemingly unimportant mass-produced objects and everyday commodities; questioning their initial creation and the ideologies behind them.
Moores has a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and an MFA from the University of Windsor Ontario. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at such institutions as the Memphis Metal Museum (TN), The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery (St. John’s, NL), Grounds for Sculpture (NJ), Art Mur (Montreal, QC), and the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (MI). Moores has taught at the University of Windsor and Brock University. He currently teaches at the York University and is represented by Diaz Contemporary (Toronto, ON).
