Archie Moore

b. 1970, Australia

Archie Moore’s (b. 1970) conceptual practice employs a variety of media. He produces paintings, drawings, sculpture, installation, photographs, video and now aromas embedded in Aboriginal politics as well as the broader concerns of racism, language and interpersonal relationships. Language in particular plays a constant role, as do the concepts of dwelling and dwellings. Being in one's skin and the impossibility for another to experience that is an ongoing theme.

Moore completed his Bachelor of Visual Arts at Queensland University of Technology in 1998. In 2001, he was awarded the Millennial Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship which enabled him to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.

In 2011, Moore began a musical collaboration, ∑gg√e|n, with fellow artist, David M. Thomas, which continues to be active in an expanded form today to include two other visual artists: Geoffrey Vagg and Paul Wrigley.

In 2010, Moore was the winner of the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. He has six times been shortlisted for the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Award (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013). In 2013, he was commissioned by Newcastle Region Art Gallery to create the sculpture, General Sanders vs Colonel Saunders; Also in 2013 he was invited to participate in the University of Queensland's National Artists' Self-Portrait Prize. His work for this exhibition, Black Dog, was recently acquired by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
