Sarah Thompson Moore
Sarah Thompson Moore was raised in the Pacific Northwest and currently resides in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Trained as a bronze foundry artisan and mold-maker, Moore’s early work involved comprehensive study of the figure for which she received awards and private commissions. She studied in Florence, Italy and obtained a BFA in Sculpture from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2015. In recent years, her work has expanded to include a variety of approaches, utilizing materials such as concrete, steel, foam and natural or recycled resources. In addition to her studio practice, Moore creates monumental site-specific sculptures, the most recent of which was exhibited along the Hudson River in Manhattan and is now permanently placed on the Florida Keys Sculpture Trail. Her newest public works are scheduled for installation in Spokane, WA in 2020 and Seattle, WA in 2021. By highlighting surrounding elements such as: weather, sunlight, shadow and sound, Moore’s sculptures seek to form tangible connections to a given place, providing space for contemplation and communion with Nature. Moore considers these surrounding elements as “found energy,” working to create a new experience each time, a collaboration between art and Nature.
