Zeke Moores: Finding beauty in the everyday
Windsor-based visual artist Zeke Moores uses sculpture to explore the social and political economies of everyday objects and our complex relationship with them. As part of the Visual Arts Spring Exhibitions, Zeke joins seven artists whose works comment on consumerism, social mores and the dialogue between the functional, decorative and art object.
Within the exhibition, entitled RE: POSITION, Zeke is displaying a collection of 30, cast aluminum axes placed in a strategic composition, creating an interesting play with lighting/shadows. As well, he’s displaying a solid bronze construction barrier. We were lucky enough to catch up with Zeke during his set up. He explained to us the concept behind his work, why he chose axes and more. We also give you (the viewers) a glimpse into how Zeke gets the axes into wall.
