I look at your "offerings" and see the talent of a psychotic 4 year old dropping acid. Seriously, do you have small children doing your painting for you? If so, I trust your're sharing the fruits of their labor with them. $$$$ Enjoy your capitalistic journey. $$$$ $400-$500 for a 30 to 45 minute "slapping & throwing of paint, sand, rocks, & boxer shorts"?????? Doesnt that make you feel the least bit guilty?

Anjoelia...what a pompous and self-important soul she must have. I shudder to think what she must festoon her walls with! Probably Elvis on Black Velvet. Keep painting Kelly. The best artist always break the rules. Oh, great site!

Wow! Can hardly wait for your gallery opening! I'm excited for you and the artist you will be showcasing. Will look for you there. Your work is so much more impressive in'person'.

Looks like you've become a parody of yourself. From your drips to your guestbook, you are one big walking cliche'. Tortured artist, misunderstood and under-appreciated by the people that "don't understand what it's all about" I'd write more, but I have to go puke now.

hi. just looking around. i'm in the self taught group. love your freedom and whimsy. i scrolled down to read the crazy lady below. did you laugh or cry or get mad? I would hate to have those opinionated creeps leaving their bad karma lying around so i don't have a guest book on my site. I seldom believe people's complements either so I don't need a guestbook. one day some lady was admiring a floral i had hanging in a coffee shop. it was a small piece, about 11 X 14 and I would rather keep it than give it away cheaply, of course. I wanted a big ol 90 bucks for that painting, the product of my wee bit of experience and imagination, art supplies and effort. She would get to keep it forever, of course, enhancing her home and her life. But alas, she bitched about the 90 bucks then went back to her espresso and crumpets. I wonder what her coffee shop bill is every month?

Kelly...Im a self taught artist as well and just wanted to say I really admire your paintings and that you have stayed true to your vision. Your colors and textures have been an inspiration to my own art and would like to thank you for that. Maybe we can exhibit together sometime in the future. PS....what is up with people slamming you or your work when they dont know you, dont even leave an email address? They should get a life if you ask me.

Kelly, glad I happened on some of your work on Ebay while posting one of my partner's paintings. Don't know what's wrong with people coming onto someone's art site and dissing them, if you don't appreciate it, stay away. Hell, I certainly do, that's why I don't watch cnn faux-news msnbc etal. Anyway, keep your spirit goin, and i love the Mother piece the best, wish I could buy it. Now I must check out your rants section - perhaps I should add a similar page to my site? seeya in the art plane.... my site: suzanneens.com my son's site: damonsoule.com my partner's site: ron-roland.com

Viewing your beautiful website makes me wonder just how an artist who produces such light, airy, whimsical paintings can also espouse such vitriolic gloom and doom regarding our way of life. I genuinely feel sorry for you, as you seem to be happy about absolutely nothing. live is really too short, my friend. I hope you can learn to enjoy at least some of what this great country has to offer.

THE TERRIBLE IMPOSTURE September 11 2001 THE TERRIBLE IMPOSTURE Any airplane crashed into the pentagon By Thierry Meyssan The official version is not sustained with an critical analysis. We will demonstrate that it was just a build-up scene. In some cases, the elements that we have picked up allow to reestablish the truth. In other cases, our questions still continue without answers, what is not a reason to continue believing the lies of the authorities. Anyway, the material that we have elaborated to question the genuineness of the American's acts in Afghanistan and the "war against the axis of evil." We invite you to not considering our work like a definitive truth. On the contrary, we invite you to the scepticism. trust just in you critic spirit. So that you can check our imputations and to be formed your own opinion, we have enriched the text with many notes that indicated you the main sources. In this period where United States separates the Good of the Evil, we will make an effort to remind them that the freedom is not to believe in a simplistic vision of the World, but understanding, to enlarge the options and to multiply the shades.

Dear Kelly, Have noticed your place on Yell and plan to visit. My husband and I have The Mystic Melon on 16 S. West Ave.,Fayetteville. It is a family home gallery of our work and my brothers. We are folk artists and my husband is primarily a gemcutter and silvermith who works with semi-precious stones. We both work in mixed media and found objects. We are totally in love with outsider and consider ourselves in that catagory,though I guess technically I am a marginal having had academic background. But I became a folk artist years ago. Well,come visit and we'll talk about it all. I like what I've seen of your work. We need the movement to hit this region. Georgia can't have it all. See ya,Teresa Pictor celestialgems.com and The Mystic Melon.com. Mystic Melon is under construction.

Kelly Moore is a great artist, getting better and better everyday (in popularity and work). Anyone that says different does know anything, and is either jealous or blind. Kelly get used to jealousy and envy as you rise, its part of the game. Especially the petty arrogant art world. See ya Kelly, hoep to own one of your pieces soon!

I'm still baffled that you are actually making money like this. You are just a helluva lot better at making money than me--I have 3 poorly paying careers to prove it. However, I doubt that you have filled a freezer with a Montana elk. Paint something like that, I'd consider purchasing it. Have fun--it's always good to get payed to do something you enjoy! D

I'm a mother, and the way this insane administration is going there will be no environment left for my kids and their kids to enjoy..Also excuse me ,but what is more con- servative than to want clean air ,clean water and some tree filled places to relax in? If or should i say when we go to war for oil the economy where i live will go down the tubes just like it did in daddy bush's gulf war. No one has any guts to stand up for anything Except making the almighty dollar....meanwhile our kids can't even buy a home here anymore because the Rich are kicking all the locals out. Keep up the good work Artwise & Otherwise I love your art and hope to able to buy one some day. PEACE

Your "Rants" page this month certaily reflect my perspective to a T which is the reason I've been an independant voter for most of my life. Besides, as a fellow artist, I don't want anyone to put me in a little box, which is what happens when you "join" a political party. Your creation, Bee, is sweet! Keep on letting the Muses talk to you, without them we cannot create.

Fayetteville, AR USA - Monday, December 16, 2002 at 10:05:37 (CST)

Hi Kelly, I consider myself an artist in a lot of areas so why is the one gal so bent out of shape? Art comes out from our imagination. I teach kids and adults how to do crafts, paint, draw, pen and ink, all sorts of stuff. Is my art not worthy because it does not meet her criteria? It is a God-given talent and I am using it in a way He intended. It brings pleasure to others. When I create my own Christmas cards each year I receive more thanks than when I was buying the boxed ones. It isn't up to her to decide what art is or isn't. We each one contribute in our own way and she can take it or leave it, but to defame someone in this way is nearly a sueable offense. She must watch her words or she could be held for defamation of character. If she argues freedom of speech then by the same token Kelly has the right to freedom of expression in his art. I really love the new one with the sheep and also the one called Rabbit Hunting. Thanks for letting me chime in. Cindy from Little Rock, AR

Oh I have to add a PS. In response to everyone that thinks art has to have a Purpose or a Reason for just Being...........Please run and buy Michele Cassou's book Point Zero Creativity without Limits by penguinputnam books. This extremely Creative person was kicked out of art school because she did not ConForm. She( lucky for us) developed her creativity without Limits! Anyone can Create and find their creative Soul. I highly suggest people like Anjoelia refer to this book to help destroy all the dragons of how it Should be... and realize art just IS. Thanks for letting me add to your guest list.

In response to Anjoeila's lovely post: To those of us who have watched Kelly grow as an artist may remember how and where he started; on e-bay selling his paintings for ONE DOLLAR. So, I think it is fair to conclude that it is people like us, the CONSUMERS, that have validated Kelly as a true artist by allowing him to raise the prices on his work, because it is evident that people are buying these paintings at their current prices. I only wish I would have bought a painting when I had the chance and when prices were much lower! Also, this "research" she was doing-was that research rooted in public displays of hostility and jealousy? AND, where is her work? I'd like to see what a "true" artist creates, because she is obviously comparing Kelly's work to her own-how brave of her to not allow us to make that comparison with our own eyes. Take Care Kelly (still thinking about you from time to time) Anne

Margaret
AR USA - Thursday, November 07, 2002 at 12:42:59 (CST)

As an avid and active collector of Kelly Moore's art, I have to respond to Anjoelia's comments below. This person is an elitist in the worst sense of the word -- someone who covers up their own insecurities and feelings of inadequacy by criticizing others of whom they are jealous or envious. Who died and made you the god of art? What gives you the right to define what art is or what an artist is? If anyone should be ashamed, it should be you. What kind of person visits internet sites and leaves public insults like this? You obviously have some sort of bone to pick with people who have not spent years and years in art school like I assume you have, but who are still leaps and bounds better and more successful than you ever dreamed of being. Art means many things to many people -- that's why it's so wonderful AND personal -- and no one should ever try to shoehorn it into some elitist and pedantic definition like you have. I personally own close to 60 pieces of Kelly's ART. These pieces do all the things that you "require" of an artist and so much more. As far as shows go, that message from Kelly must obviously be out of chronological order. I have seen Kelly's shows with my own eyes, and he has more lined up in the future. He does have gallery representation, by one of the most renowned outsider galleries in the US. And Kelly is modest in his pricing. If you could see his pieces in person like I have and know the care and work (and soul) that goes into them, you would know that they are worth infinitely more. The only person "insulting hardworking artists" here is you. Literally and figuratively. Art is about free expression. There are no requirements to being an artist. If you can move one person with your work, or even just yourself, you have every right to call yourself an artist or whatever else you wish. You are obviously jealous that Kelly CAN and DOES sell his art for what you claim to be ridiculously high prices. I am not professionally connected with Kelly Moore or his work in any way. His art moves, inspires, entertains, delights me, and I find it shameful and sad that someone like you finds it necessary to come here and deface his site.

During my research I stumbled across this site. I understand that you may not appreciate my comments, but you do ask people to sign your guest book. Being an artist myself, I've always felt that art should fulfill it's viewer in some way, even perform a duty on some level. Art, on it's most basic level, should inspire, teach, or entertain. I found that I was inspired only to leave your site. I learned that your work lacks talent, imagination and integrity. I was entertained only by the prices you claim to demand. By calling yourself an "artist," you assume that you have an inherent right to use that title. I suppose using that logic, anyone capable of opening a tube of paint and spattering it onto a blank surface is officially an "artist.". A true artist earns the title of "artist" after years of working, studying, and practicing his chosen form of expression. I find it personally and professionally insulting that "artists" such as yourself feel justified in claiming the title "artist" because you have an opposable thumb and can somtimes manage to hold a paint brush by the correct end. I want you to know that the anger expressed in this message was provoked by the absurd prices you claim to demand for work that is substandard in the art community. This may be the reason you "can not even get a showing in your local coffee house." If you were painting for fun, and to express your inner turmoil, your site would be more palatable. However, you claim to sell your "paintings" for prices that rival some of the best artist alive today. Nonsense, and shame on you for insulting all of those hardworking artists out there, and for degrading them by using the same title.

Interesting paintings. I like "family," and "support." Baby shower, too, although this is a little too close to objectively enjoy :). Life is peaceful without t.v., that is true, especially in the last 2 years. I'm surprised, Kelly. Looks like you've really come a long way...if they say you're crazy you might be crazy, but at least you're expressing art. Don't become obsessed with money, it is very unbecoming.

Kelly, I love you new paintings! My favorite is Memory Trace! One of these days I will be able to afford one and tell my friends, "I use to live by this guy". You need to contact the ACO to have a show! Im not sure who the lady is that you need to contact, but tell them you know me! I was telling them about you this summer. The ACO likes having exhibits from locals! Keep it up! Missy:)

Kelly, your work is growing by leaps and bounds. I am so proud of the strides you are taking and proud to call you my friend. I loved Baby Shower and Memory Trace. I'll be in touch about "Family". As the name states it is now a part of our family. :) I am happy to say it has found a home in living room. Your work is great. It continues to bring a smile to face and makes me pause in thought... Love, Lori

Love the direction your voice is going now. My favorites in your latest paintings are "Sunday Drive", "Memory Trace" and "Baby Shower" (wonder where you got the inspiration for that one?). Keep growing Kelly!

Very cool organic paintings. Like the rawness of your paintings and different mediums you use with the images. I like "Red Bottom Bird" and "Simple Man" the best. Keep up the work and good luck.

Subject: -- No Subject -- Posted By: kellymoore in reply to Topic Msg #: Posted On: 5/30/02 9:39 AM Viewing 4 of 87 Replies Actually, anyone can call me whatever they wish....Ive been called all the above, some worse and some better. The term outsider has been thrown around my neck by other people although I have to say if the shoe fits ya gotta wear it. It fits pretty snug right now. Art Brut is another term I hear about my stuff. But, Im also aware different people have different definitions and thats ok also. I started painting when I was 35 and in the midst of some pretty severe emotional pain that just provoked an unconscious need to purge alot of stuff. At this point, I still paint for this reason mostly. I feel pretty isolated in the world, a social outsider if you will, and use my paintings is my attempt to sort out the world. Communicate. I let my unconscious thoughts speak to my canvas. I cant draw, never had any desire to learn and consider it my code of honor. I think academic learned art is someone elses idea (to each his own though ;) . From the mind and not from the soul. I create very intuitively and any attempt at forethought is disaster for me. Ive never had an art show (cant even get a show in my local coffee house) no gallery interest and although I think my stuff is pretty good, Im aware at its best, about 10% of people are gonna like it. Thats the numbers so far. Alot of people wanna hand me crayons to which I say, I already have two cartons. Im drawn to some unusual processes that are not considered very good but I really dont think it matters too much. If my paintings last 100 years or even 50 thats ok. Its all about what Im doing NOW. So, anyway, glad you like my paintings (buy one!) and feel free to just call me a good painter. But, so long as I feel fringe and continue to be referred to in this manner...I guess I will just feel like an outsider. This is my response to the question. Dont be offended if I dont respond to any other questions about this as defining myself is not my top priority.

I love the layout and design of your website. I also enjoyed reading your rants. I agree with you about TV and how it seems we are spoon-fed certain information. I do think that's always been the way it is though -- all around the world. Your writing is thought provoking. Keep writing and keep going after your dreams! Denise

Hi Kelly, I'm usually pretty good at expressing myself with words, but your work stuffs them right back into my mouth. They aren't expressing what I want to say, the way I want to say it. I think I should paint my replies. ?

I enjoyed reading your rants. It sounds like we have many common ones. It was good meeting you (Jeana V's friend). Thank you for talking about your work. I think you would enjoy hearing about my friend Budhi Kling's process painting workshops. They are based on her experiences with Michelle Cassou's and Stewart Cubley's approaches. They probably have internet sites if you wish to take a look. I'll email more thoughts. Take Care, Cheryll

I think the number 8 it is actually the infinity symbol in his paintings, which brings an entirely new level to all of his work. I love looking at Kelly's art! I can stare at it for hours and still find something new hidden within. Great work Kelly, I'm always awaiting what you come up with next. Cheers!

Since "plagiarism" (notice the correct spelling) refers to the act of presenting someone else's ideas as one's own, I think Mr. Moore is pretty safe from Academic's preceding allegation; Mr. Moore takes great care in giving proper credit to any borrowed words in his rants. Furthermore, Academic might try providing solid evidence in support of such untenable claims.
Schmackademic

While your work is undoubtedly unique, I'm wondering if everyone is aware that your monthly rants are a disgusting display of plagarism. If your talent lies in painting and not in writing, don't try it-the smart people out there know better!

So much red, so much vibrant passion...you must be an intense lover. How can you cope with the libido? I can tell, you allow your art to help assuage the heat. I want to purchase one of your paintings, but fear that I'll be consumed by the flames every time I am in its presence.... by the way, are you single?
