Lowe Mill A&E invites patrons and art lovers to join us for an Artist Talk with Chad Moore. He will discuss his photography series to guests who will learn and have a chance to purchase his work.
Chad Moore is a self taught photographer living in Birmingham, Alabama. His primary subject matter are his children’s toys, which he trips over frequently and often leads to bouts of profanity. His greatest joy, besides his children, is finding humor in the most mundane of subject matters. No toys were harmed in the taking of these photos.
From the artist:
This spring, my brother’s family and mine got together for a week during spring break. This gave us five children under one roof all ranging in ages from five to nine. What struck me most about that week was how frequently all of the children would be on one mobile device or another. There were times when all five would be sitting in the same room with their heads lowered and faces illuminated by whatever apps they were playing or YouTube channel they were watching. It was mildly frightening [a]nd, it inspired me to… produce a series based on characters so absorbed in their phones that they fail to notice the coming of their ultimate demise.
This exhibition will be on display in the First Floor West Gallery from June 6 – July 28, 2018.
