John F. Moore - Artist Statement:
These paintings are based on a lecture that Frank Stella delivered at the Pratt Institute in the 60's. In this lecture, he explained how he had reduced painting to its two most essential elements: what to paint and how to paint it. I translated these phrases to mean application and composition, respectively. Inspired by this conceptual framework, I took Stella's two essential elements and created my own series of paintings.
