Neil Moore’s Enchanted Sonata (Offset Lithograph, signed) purchased on May 3, 1986 at Jenkintown Newcomers Club Art Show and Auction

Neil Moore

I am described as a 'contemporary figurative realist painter' - quite a mouthful, but I guess it means that I am alive and paint people as they are. People, individually and humanity in general, continually perplex me. I try by painting them to try and unravel some of the complex tangle of our lives. It sounds daft and pretentious I know, but it's harmless and it is what I do.  I am not going to 'explain' the imagery. Any explanation by me, or anyone else, will deny you the opportunity to use your own imagination. Your response should arise out of your individual experience.
