Born in 1957, in Omaha, Nebraska. English was raised in a rural town near Colorado Springs, and completed his formal artistic training at the Rocky Mountain School of Art in Denver, Colorado in 1979. After graduation, he joined the faculty at the Art Students League of Denver and the Scottsdale Artists School.

English depicts the profound moments of beauty often hidden within the particulars of daily life. A master of painterly chiaroscuro, his work remarks on the powerful harmony that exists between light and shadow in nature. While much of his subject matter is pulled from local venues, English loves to travel, and responds to the inherent beauty he finds in each new destination.

Recent trips (Europe, South America, and the American Southwest) have provided English with ample opportunities to discover new material. With an explorer’s enthusiasm, he records his journeys in quick pencil sketches and small color studies that can be further developed in the studio.

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of English’s work is his astonishing manipulation of his medium. Using the alla prima method, he typically finishes a piece in one sitting, granting his pictures an immediacy and instinctive quality that is recognizable across a wide range of subject matter. He compentently transitions from thin washes of color to buttery areas of generously applied paint, creating texture and reinforcing the impact of his overall design.

English is an accomplished pianist and composer, and he has likened the simplicity of his painting style to the rhythm, movement, and balance of composing music. Indeed, repetitions and variations of small spots of bright color in his work harmonize with the steadying effects of a few strokes of neutral tones.

The work of Kim English might aptly be appreciated on an abstract level-his arrangements of color and shape are pleasing in their own right. However, as the literal content reveals itself to the viewer, one cannot help but acknowledge that his facile technique is befitting of his subject matter. Regardless of the locale, his primary muse is the behavior of light and the challenge of capturing these effects with a levity that conveys the fleeting nature of some of life’s most beautiful moments.

English has exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the NAWA 21st Annual Exhibition, Arts for the Parks, the Colorado Governor’s Invitational at the Loveland Museum, the A.R. Mitchell Memorial Museum of Western Art, The Knickerbocker 42nd Annual Exhibition, and with the Oil Painters of America. He has shown with the allied Artists of America and was awarded their Gold Medal of Honor. He has also won both the Certificate of Merit and the Joseph Hartley Memorial Award from the Salmagundi Club in New York.

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.
