b.1958

Interested in art as a child, Bruce Cheever embarked on a career as a fine artist after spending many years as an illustrator. It was during those years that he discovered his affinity for tonalism and luminism. Cheever’s atmospheric and bucolic landscapes are suggestive of the Renaissance era. His passion for the landscape is driven by the never-ending search for beauty. Today, Cheever’s studio paintings take shape from the inspiration he gathers from his travels. Whether painting a rural scene in the American West or a pastoral European landscape, his painting style is emerging with a uniqueness of its own. Born in 1958, this Utah artist credits his education at Brigham Young University and a professional career as an illustrator as prime training ground in both observation and discipline.

Bruce has had the opportunity to travel to many parts of the world capturing the beauty of the landscape in his paintings. His love of the Western American Landscape has been a hallmark of his success. Cheever exhibits at many invitational shows around the country. Cheever has been honored to exhibit with the prestigious “Masters of the American West” show at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles CA. and “Arts for the Parks” with the National Park Service where he was included in the top 100 winners. Bruce also exhibits at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa Oklahoma and in the annual “Quest for the West Show” held at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Indiana. His work has been featured in Art of the West, Southwest Art, American Art Collector, and Western Art Collector.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Art is a visual language, and as an artist, my hope is that my work is not just paint on a board, but rather a combination of inspiration, emotion, and skill that combines to inspire the human soul. As primarily a landscape painter, I strive to evoke emotion in the spirit of those who view my work and to give them a sense of place in the landscape. My hope is that I can touch the chords of nostalgia and beauty that lie within each of us, and further hope to inspire others to pay attention to the simple beauties of life. Art is a confluence of inspiration and skill which is why I consciously use harmony, balance, repetition, and spontaneity as the anchors of my compositions. Each work is carefully planned using age-old proportions of the golden mean and other mathematical divisions. My passion to create art is also driven by shape, color, and movement as well as the subject matter that inspires me. I draw inspiration from what I love the most: impressionism, tonalism, luminism, and realism. I admire each element for its own individual merit. When I choose a subject to render, it is the result of having had a personal connection with a certain place or thing in my life. My paintings are a reflection of my life’s experiences; each painting becomes a part of me and I become a part of it–you could say that I adopt it. My aim is to give my very best mental and emotional effort to my art. I have an enormous respect for many great artists who have influenced and shaped the world for good through their artistic contributions. Thomas Moran, George Innes, Andrew Wyeth, Maxfield Parish, and many Renaissance artists of the past, such as Michelangelo, are among my favorites. My wife and family, as well as my parents, have given me invaluable support over the years, and I credit them for their encouragement along the way. My teachers and contemporaries have been great sources of inspiration and I have learned invaluable lessons not to be forgotten. My hope is to inspire others through my art and to participate in reminding mankind that the world can be good if we consciously take the time to appreciate what is around us. I am inspired by the ordinary and moved by the extraordinary and feel that both are equal in beauty if careful attention is given to both. I thank God for his gifts to me, and the ability to share them with others. I simply believe that we are all given glimpses of divinity to sooth our souls, and that each of us is given gifts to share with one another.

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.
