Emily Moore

Emily Moore (b.1983, London, UK) is a painter that lives and works in London.Moore graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2020 with a Masters in Painting. She was awarded the Valerie Beston Award 2020. Recent exhibitions include her debut Solo Black Roses at Ordovas Gallery London, 2021, An infinity of traces at Lisson Gallery, Tomorrow: London at White Cube London.

Moore has created her own term ‘wildness’ in contemporary painting which she feels speaks both to her approach within her practice but suggests the state of contemporary painting through the lens of art history and its current context within the immediate conversations surrounding painting. Black Roses saw Moore expanding the language of ‘Wildness’ in the form of her creating her own visual coded language.

Although Moore defines herself as a painter her practice and the explorative sense of wildness can be seen in her studio. Sometimes this takes form through brush and paint to canvas; other times it is through yarn and weaving, or installation, play and performance.
