About the Works Shown
The paintings are inspired by the shared formal affinity of typesetter and painter; both must solve the problems of the picture plane, dividing it with intersecting horizontal and vertical lines. The use of of fonts that are not characters in the western Latin-derived alphabet transforms symbols of unknown sounds into symbols of a subjective individual reality, raising the question: Is it truly possibly to codify human experience in a world divided by language and other geopolitical and cultural boundaries?
Other Work by Moira Cue
Moira Cue began painting at the age of 15. And by 17, had completed approximately 300 brightly colored semi-abstract works, mostly on Masonite, some as large as 6′ by 4′. Many of these early works reflect her love of the expressive and decorative art of the Modern era. These works are frequently interpreted as homages to well-known masters including Matisse, Picasso, and Klimpt- with a feminine twist.
In her early twenties, the artist began a series of still life, each of which are in private collection, including a painting made for a Vice President of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago using the client’s personal tchotchkes as subject matter. Her work also resides in the collections of pop icon Madonna among more.
Black and White Series
In addition to her catalog of 240 8″ by 11″ font paintings, a more recent version of the series, sized at 9″ by 12,” a set of 365 daily black and white paintings from which the font series evolved, as well as private commissions, viewings, and consultation are available upon request.
