Entering The Place Of Moving Through

Billy Moore

Billy Moore’s art is beautiful, transporting the viewer to a place of silence and serenity. We are incredibly proud to introduce this new collection which has a unique spiritual dynamism. The sculptural painting technique with a strong inimitable individual signature, defines his work amongst all others. The collection of bronze sculptures epitomise a tender connection to humanity which simultaneously reflects the artists’ sensitivity and supreme skill. Mesmerising and captivating art which enhances the mind, this collection is more than visual.
