An Ancient Soul – The Art of Philip Moore

Published on May 22, 2012 by Errol Ross Brewster

In this 1995 feature Philip speaks expansively of the Spirit taught philosophy that underpins his creations. Dr. Adeoloa James, a Nigerian residing and teaching in Guyana gives her insight into the atavistic connection Moore has to his heritage of African Spirituality and which is always at the heart of his art.

Dr. Denis Williams, then Director of Art, recognizes Moore’s status as a great Caribbean adaptation of a great African tradition and clarifies the technological and iconological aspects of his work. 

Errol Ross Brewster, a Guyanese multi-media artist, teacher and cultural activist, as director of this feature, points in the visual treatment to Moore’s transmogrification of ordinary everyday experience which enriches us all, and reveals him as the artist to best mirror a most magical apprehension of the world that as Caribbean people we all can relate to.
