‘JET’ will be Ciara Moore’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles and the USA. The exhibition will feature new work from her Black Unfolding and Cocoon series’.
For the past two years, Ciara Moore has limited herself to working with the concept and color black. The artist’s fascination with black stems from the intimate relationship of the color to light. It is the very intensity of light which allows the viewer to see how color reflects or absorbs, depending on its origin, its matt, gloss, metallic or velvet qualities. Moore’s process creates an intricate aesthetic experience through the juxtaposition of two black pigments of varying opacity and texture on a page, the angle of a fold or how it behaves with the nature of paper selected. The reduction of color and composition down to core essentials, black and white/darkness and light, opens up the visual complexity and dynamic of the compositional plane. The works have a sculptural quality as the rises and folds of the paper play against the black, textured, surface.
