Description

In his 2010 print on silk, the late Philadelphia artist Moe Brooker, a preacher’s son, conjures the sounds and emotional vibrance that recall his childhood in the church through its vivid colors and abstracted forms. Brooker was often artistically inspired by his faith and regularly incorporated “ttgg” (”To the Glory of God”) as a recognition of his religious devotion.

Moe Brooker, in collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia.

Meet the Artist

Moe Brooker

Moe Brooker's brilliantly colored abstract canvases are characterized by a varied array of mark-making and recessive space with layered, juxtaposed patterns and a lively sense of formal invention. Following his education at the Tyler School of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in the early 1970s, the artist decided to move from semi-figurative paintings to pure abstraction, explaining this change as due to a desire to paint vibrant and rich African-American culture but lacking the representational iconography to do so.
