Harry James Moody – A Painter’s Domain
538 Abstract with Some Clouds by Harry James Moody, 2021, Oil on Canvas, 36 x 36 in
Moody’s paintings reflect his appreciation of nature. Inspiration from horizons landscapes & deserts
* January 25 – February 27
Harry James Moody’s work is a culmination of his impressive artistic education, exposure to the artistic atmosphere of Germany in the 70s and 80s and years working as galleries, curator, conservator and fine artist.
Moody believes that all art begins with drawing, and while he is foremost a painter, he credits his dedication to the continued practice of drawing to one of his early instructors, Karl Bormann.
All of Moody’s paintings reflect his appreciation of nature. His inspiration comes the horizons, landscapes, and deserts he observes while hiking in nature. Moody also uses photography as an important step in his artistic process, documenting his time in nature for further reflective study.
When talking about his creative process, Moody says, “I try to get myself out of the equation and I try to get out of my own way. I try to blank out the conscious. The subconscious is where the essence of you is really getting played.”
Influenced by German abstract artist Gerhard Richter, Moody developed his own style questioning color, composition, aesthetics, and patterns. He works with squeegees and palette knifes to apply oil paint to the canvas in layers while the paint is still wet, resulting in vibrant works full of texture and rhythm.
