Colin Moore was born on the Clyde Coast of Scotland in 1949. He studied architecture in Glasgow, and following an international career in architecture and design, has worked as a painter and printmaker since 2002.
Colin works with linocut printing, a technique using linoleum as a print matrix. In printmaking terms linocut is termed 'reductive' in that each successive layer is carved away from the linoleum and printed over the last. This means that it is impossible to make changes to the work once it has begun. Linoleum has been used in art printing since the early 20th century but is probably best known following its use by Picasso in the late 1950s. Picasso was an avid printmaker who experimented with creating multiple colour linocut prints using a single block of linoleum. Colin makes a lot of use of colour in his prints, his many seascapes and landscapes are multi-layered and build from light colours through to dark which creates a nuanced tonal range and brings the work together as a whole.
He has lived in Spain and Venezuela and currently lives in London, England. Colin is a founder of Tile Kiln Studios, an artists' collective in Highgate, London and is a member of Southbank Printmakers Association which regularly exhibits his work. His paintings and prints can be obtained from a number of galleries throughout the UK. Contact the artist for information. He is the author of Propaganda Prints, a history of art in the service of social and political change, was published by A & C Black of London.
