Zeke Moores is inspired by what society throws away. His sculptures explore the transient nature of contemporary culture, valuing crumpled cardboard boxes, street barriers, milk crates and moving blankets. Moores reclaims these discarded and forgotten objects as the cultural artifacts of our time, recreating them in bronze and aluminum to highlight their beauty and potential. Moores was raised in Conception Bay South, NL. He has lived in Halifax, New Jersey, Toronto and Windsor, where he has resided for the past ten years. In 2011 Moores was a finalist for the Sobey Art Award, Canada’s pre-eminent prize for contemporary art.
