"My works could be seen as two-dimensional readings of three-dimensional, abstract landscapes that are rendered with a handmade aesthetic."- Robert Moya
Robert's Moya's practice involves building up thick, dried layers of acrylic paint and recycled textiles. Once he has a desired thickness in the layers of cloth and paint, he cuts them into squares and rectangles, which he then collages onto wooden substrates.
Moya's works could be seen as two-dimensional readings of three-dimensional, abstract landscapes that are rendered with a handmade aesthetic. His interest is in the variances between neighboring spaces (certain nuanced relations in patterns, space, color, surface, depth, and composition), as well as how these spaces might relate to the differences in the man-made spaces that we, as humans, inhabit and create.
Moya comes from a long line of New Mexican artists and artisans. He moved from Albuquerque to LA, where he currently teaches and makes art.
Moya holds an MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute.
