Urs Moore (1985) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2019. He holds a Master in Social Psychology and considers himself an discourse artist who explores the philosophical possibilities of the medium painting.
In my work I operate on the boundary of the medium and use the foundations of painting such as brushwork, hanging, paint, pigment and canvas, but also references to art history and contemporary discourse as material. My work is created through appropriation and reference. Depth I find in flatness, in the ignoring of hierarchies, in irony, humor and subversion.ursmoore.com
