James Moore was born in Atlanta GA in 1986 and received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2009. His work incorporates drawing, lighting, and sculpture into installations that combine narratives of mysticism and lore with technology and science models. He is interested in the metaphorical application of energy and light in art, the growing connectivity between people and technology, inter-dimensionality, anatomy, the relationship between creation, destruction and regeneration, and riding high performance motorcycles, an action he sublimates into his art making practice.
Moore's work has been featured by The Creators Project, Artnet, BULLETT Magazine, Purple Magazine, as major public installations, and exhibited in shows at Signal Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and Alt Esc in Art Basel Miami.
Moore lives and works in New York City.
