Moore’s first major solo exhibition to be held in Melbourne will feature his video and sound works, as well as hyper-electric digital paintings within a tactile environment, all characterised by the artist’s ongoing critical consideration of technology and media consumption across high and low culture.

One of the first Australian artists to work with video, Moore has maintained an unwavering commitment to creating a body of work that engages with the moving image in all its forms. Using video, animation, performance and sound, as well as painting, photography, sculpture and installation, Moore creates psychedelic, decadent works that reach back to pop, abstract expressionism and surrealism. His works are characterized by an overriding sense of emotion, where energy and angst, perversion and pleasure, seduction and danger co-exist.

With Love & Squalor will include the video animation Tripasso In Wackyland, a conceptually-dense mash-up of pop-culture, where Stanley Kubrick meets Looney Toons and Fantasia turns into a terrifying dreamscape; The Way Things Grow, an animated interpretation of seminal Fischli & Weiss video work The Way Things Go; and as well as new works created specifically for this exhibition including the sound project When Cats Dream of Everything.
