Susan Moore, American, b. 1953

Gallery Label:

Born in Panama, Moore earned a BFA from Indiana University and an MFA from the University of California. She currently teaches at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. Her favorite subject is the human figure, and she often focuses on certain body parts, especially faces. Although she refers to her subjects as portraits, she divulges little about her sitters’ inner thoughts or personalities. In this Double Portrait, she juxtaposes two mask-like female faces, encouraging the viewer to make comparisons between the two. Because the figures reveal so little about themselves, the viewer is forced to analyze the image’s formal qualities, including paint texture, color, and form.
