About this title

Synopsis:

Industrial landscape paintings by John Moore executed over the last three decades focus on sites from Conneaut, Ohio, to Waterville, Maine, including Coatesville, Pennsylvania, a locale that has inspired such American Modernists as Charles Demuth and Ralston Crawford. Moore has revisited places in Coatesville and throughout the rustbelt that he painted twenty years ago, and his most recent paintings depict changes that have occurred there since. One of his subjects, Paradise, Pennsylvania, 13 miles west of Coatesville, is Amish farmland, a place that is the rural antithesis of industrial life in America.

Moore is often described as one of the one of the leading realist painters of his generation, and many of his paintings resemble places where he grew up. While the images appear immediately recognizable, the paintings are, in fact, partial composites, based on specific sites but also incorporating formal concerns and oral history as told by individuals with ties to the regions.

The Thirteen Miles from Paradise catalogue is drawn from the exhibition of the same name at the Arthur Ross Gallery of the University of Pennsylvania, where Moore has been Gutman Professor of Fine Arts and chair of the Department of Fine Arts since 1999. The catalogue includes contributions by Alexi Worth, a senior critic in the Department of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania; and by Debra Bricker Balken, an independent curator and writer.
