Lisa Upchurch Moore is an Atlanta based artist whose beautifully stunning works of the female figure carry such a sense of serenity. From the palette to the the canvas, the depiction of emotion and persona in these paintings is eternally apparent and utterly mezmerizing!
“People are bombarded daily with images of all that is wrong and ugly in our world. Sometimes that constant flow of negativity establishes an overarching cynicism and melancholy… and we forget that we have a choice in our perspective. I am inspired by… The beauty of the figure both human and horse in motion or at rest. The feeling of love and joy when watching children at play and the history of old worn out buildings.I love capturing the essence of those people, places or things and bringing their soul forward to view and feel. My hope is that through my art, viewers will choose to tap into the feelings of joy, comfort, and happiness that stem from the simple things of everyday life … holding a child’s hand, feeling the warmth of an animal, or remembering a place or time that holds meaning.” — Lisa Moore
