Topaze 'T.C.' Moore
I am a environmental artist who uses an array of natural materials, horse hair, hoof clippings, wood shavings, teeth, feathers and fur to create work which celebrates the organic unity of all living things. My work is inspired by the Biophilia hypothesis, a term coined by E.O. Wilson which states that humans as a species have a universal love for the natural world.
    Visually, my work is ephemeral assemblies of natural materials mixed with traditional art materials, graphically strong and at times, enigmatic, ethereal, ghostlike and primeval. My work balances the patterns of nature with the formalism created with my hands. Looking, collecting and touching nature’s materials are integral with the process of creating my work.
