James Elliott Moore is a Brooklyn-based nature boy and artist who grew up by the Appalachian mountains. He knows more about Scandinavian black metal that any Swede I know, and there aren’t many horror movies he hasn’t watched. Whatever his format – sculpture, video, photography, drawings – he is always exploring the dark side of human nature using imagery associated with fear, violence and ancient spiritualism to question what the eff is going on in modern American society. You’ll get along with him just fine if you too are fascinated with serial killers, wabi-sabi, and drone sounds.
