b.1959

Some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes, in places like Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Nevada, California, New York, Utah and several more are shot by an Australian landscape photographer – Peter Lik. He stands at the pinnacle of photographing stunning scenes and consequently becoming a world renowned personality.

He was born after World War II, in 1959 in Melbourne, Australia. On his eighth birthday he was gifted a Kodak Brownie box camera and he used it to take the first photo of his life. He photographed a spider web in the family home’s garden. Then onwards whenever he went on a family holiday, he took photos of the ocean and the country scenes around him. This practice continued even when he went on road trips into the backwoods of Australia and into the city. He was often accompanied by his friend, Michael Plumridge, who was a photographer himself.

Lik educated himself about this craft and then made a life changing verdict of going to America in 1984. A significant moment in Lik’s life was when the panoramic camera was introduced to him. With this amazing tool, he went back to Australia to capture the vastness and exquisiteness of the South Land. He then opened his own publishing company of fine art and a gallery in his hometown.

In 1989, he revisited the United States and as the millennium hit, he went on a cross-country trip to all the 50 states to photograph anything he felt was worth capturing into his reel. he traveled 50,000 miles and spent thousand rolls on this venture. The highlights of this trip are mentioned in Spirit of America, his book.

As a photographer, Peter Lik managed to construct his image in a way that he won awards of Master Photographer from the Professional Photographers of America and the Australian Institute of Professional Photography. By The Royal Photographic Society and British Institute of Professional Photographers, he has received fellowship awards.

His work has been sold for millions of dollars and he owns thirteen galleries. Famous people like celebrities and presidents are counted in his list as the collectors of his work. After From the Edge with Peter Lik, a television series produced by NBC, Lik has become a household name.

Lik’s masterpieces include Sacred Sunrise, Ancient Spirit, Tree of Life, Ghost and Angel’s Heart. A photo by him, titled One, was sold for one million dollar and from then he was considered an exceptional photographer with no boundaries of imagination and achievement.

In May 2011, a photo shot in Antelope Canyon in Arizona, Ghost was included in a exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History. Consequently, he won the category: Art in Nature for Nature’s Best Photography at the Windland Smith Rice International Awards in 2010. Additionally, his piece called Inner Peace also won in 2011 in the same award ceremony at Smithsonian Institute.

Peter Lik’s main styles in taking photographs are either horizontal or vertical panoramic views. Another thing that is good about this man is that he presents his photographs with equal effort. As much as the photo is important, its framing, printing and quality of paper is also important.

Many viewers find a kind of “glow” in the colors of his photograph prints. They often feel that there is light behind the frame – a rather mysterious yet successful approach by Lik. He seems to be using a unique printing style or are the pictures ‘photoshopped’? Images by him have become an inspiration for many young photographers who are also willing to work on sceneries, landscapes and cityscapes.

Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
