Kelly ,,iam an artist also ur work is very intriguing ... ilove art
u have to see into this way //// a fellow artist dee
Kelly ! Bonjour à tous de France !
Bravo pour ton annuaire international dans lequel j'ai l'honneur de
figurer ! I will work hard on my web site this year !
you for mail. I developed the link with your site. I am a fan of your
picture. I can become happy by seeing your picture. my website: www.h3.dion.ne.jp/~esprit/
My current favorite artiste!
are major assholes. Your art seems nice to me and not very "evil"
so I guess I don't understand some of these comments. I guess the
wholesome "good" people have nothing better to do than to
be negative and nasty pieces of shit. Well, we see the state the country
is in because of them so I figure they will get theirs soon enough.
work, cool site. I'm Inspired! Thanks!!
art is very wicked. i'm an artist myself, and i hope to get like you
one day. everyone says my art is demented, and i'm only 14. i've been
drawing since i was able to pick up a pencil.keep doing what you are
doing, b/c it is working!
like the notion of the integration of light & dark within. We
ALL have it! Great Work, even sometimes humorous. Guess it workd differently
for different people. Much better than Real Estate ha!
are sick sick sick...I recommend you check your meds. I think there
is a possibility we will see you in jail by the end of next week.
Art criminal thats you. I dont care how brilliate the art is you are
crazy. How could you throw away your life doing something like this?
People in the world need goodness and you have nothing but the devil
on your winning competition at A La Carte Gallery in Santa Fe. I am
so happy to see all the progress you have made with your art, Kelly.
Your successes are a thrill for me to see! Are you in Santa Fe? Please
drop me a quick note and update me as to where you are, etc. Cheers
and Bravo to all you do!
fiesty website.. enjoyed it!!!!! thank you for you inspiration.
cool, excellent! have you ever thought of putting your work on toothbrushes
and eggcups? if you did i would buy one and i would use it everyday
and my teeth would be clean forever more! and i would use my egg cup
everday to eat my breakfast so that i will grow up big and strong
and be a healthy young person. I'm an artist too but i only ever clean
my nose when i've sneezed and i never EVER pick my nose and eat it.
I think that art is the best thing since sliced bread, although saying
that toast rocks. i love you and rainbows and tulips and catterpillars
I am really into expressionism at the moment. I love art and you are
really talented. It looks awesome. Keep up the good work, you will
be extremely famous one day!
styles! Really like the work!
love the work. There are great hints to COBRA in the work; Jorn in
particular. Not to say there isn't a healthy splash of your own inventions.
I will be back to check your updates. Good luck! www.davidalexandersmith.net
like the other Kelly Moore, I was just googling my name and your's
came up. Your stuff is really interesting. Keep working.
from home! I thought you might want to know that in Katie's art class
she was telling her teacher that she was modelling her painting after
the famous artist 'Kelly Moore'. You make a differnce. Don't let all
the mean people who sign this guest book bring you down. Knowing you,
they probably make you smile.. :-) Keep in touch! Lori
how people can be so mean spirited and nasty in the face of someone
who has the courage to do art and the work to display it. I bet these
same dirty mouthed 'artists' likely turn around and support the status
quo in every other way.. I think your work is wonderful to watch as
it unfolds from 1996 to 2005. I particularly like your new 'untitled'
on the 2005 page. Keep doing it Kelly!!! and don't let the bastards
(and bitches) get you down!
isn't any of your old work on the site. You know, the work that looks
nothing like what's up there now? The work you were copying before
you started copying the people who originated your current "style"?
I'll know what your "art" is going to look like in 5 years
by looking at what's popular on ebay in 3 years. You'll be copying
that. Ever done anything original? I already know the answer to that.
shit. I'm inspired. Fuck the critics. Have you ever considered putting
your work on T-shits, 'cause I'd buy one. Keep on keepin' on.
guys are all idiots. I'm the only one with any brains at all. Good
job!! nice site!! thank you for creating this site. peony, peony,
flower, tree peony, peony plant.
just happened upon your site, while actually searching for myself.
:D I thought it was neat to see someone with such
talent that shared the same name with me. Who in turn was from Arkansas
work Kelly, I really like it!
paintings are wonderful...raw emotion and stunning use of colour...keep
up the great work.
thoroughly enjoyed your work. You reminded me another great artist
(thematically not compositionally or technically), José Tola.
I am looking forward to see it live.
so-called art sucks...you should be ashamed to call yourself an artist.
Not only that I would not be surprised if you were an ax murderer
or maybe a devil worshipper (which is what most of the liberals in
the world seem to want to make the heros) Also, I dont know how you
get to show any paintings anywhere but the fact that you displayed
work in a museum or art center just tells me that the state of art
is pathetic!!! Please go away and let the REAL ARTIST get the attention
like you art, is beautiful, great, professional, wow, congratulatios!
Brilliant, powerful stuff you've got!
to you! great site, you are doing what I aspire to do. You are making
a difference; hang your hat on that fact.
ME a Big PHAT pic of a "WATERMELON"!! Be safe and stay golden
Kelly- there is a lot of passion in your work. A captured theme. I really like the donation to a worthy cause concept. As a fellow artist I applaud this and will look into this concept for my site-personally as well as professionally. Keep up the fight and the vision.

You inspire me to loosen up as I get so up tight with my work and worry and analyze and blah, blah, blah. It looks like you just put it out there and delight in every morsel of paint applied. You may enjoy a site I get regular e-mails from as well if you don't subscribe already (free, of course)firstname.lastname@example.org. It's good and worth your time.

Finally some encouragement for this struggling artist, to see that your guestbook is as rich with envious detractors as it is compliments. I myself am somewhat of a raw artist - I use ground minerals in every color imaginable to make very textured paint. I have been fortunate to have a few works shown in a trendy restaurant in an area that is mostly upper class Baptist rednecks, and I am sorry to say that they are winning. My work is controversial and unacceptable in a town that only likes oil paintings of fruit bowls and waterfalls - though I have actually managed to get 15 minutes of local TV time for my work - my work is being taken down in favor of "Contemporary Rustic", in other words something that won't upset these dried out country club biddies. I am so far an unwelcome upset to the comfortable world of art in Highlands, NC, and they are doing their damnedest to keep me out, but when I see my fellow artistic insophisticates out there pushing like I am, I know I have to keep going.

I have reviewed your entire site and your blog. You probably will not post this entry in your guest book, but I agree with those of your critics who have pointed out the vast discrepancy in size between your ego and your talent. You seem to have a seed of talent, but are too caught up in your self-portayal as a "tortured artist," rejecting the "establishment," etc., etc. A news flash for you - it's been done before, and better, by Van Gogh and Gauguin! Why don't you drop the cliches, practice some humility, and take some art lessons? In one of your blog posts, you claim you are selling everything you own and hitting the road, perhaps to Louisiana. Are you going to shut down your site and sell your computer too? I doubt it!!!!! Listen, while you're in Louisiana, why not check out www.noafa.com? Afraid of a little criticism?

Hi there Kelly! I bought one of your pieces 2 years ago. It was a bit different from your other work at the time, more raw and more abstract....a bit more introspective. Your most recent work has now moved in that same direction, less literal, purely pictoral, and much more rich in texture, layering and abstraction. There is an influence of Basquiat, DuBuffet, and a wonderful fresh similarity to a little known artist named Gus Finkelstein, whose work is also incredible. But now I can!Hitler's mindless self-righteous minions labeled the works of Munch, Picasso, Kolwitz, and Van Gogh as "depraved" and "degenerate", and of course "child-like". Boy, were they stupid idiots! The "academics" of Paris at the turn of the century labeled the work of Manet, Pissaro, Monet, Degas, and Renoir as "amateurish" and "child-like" Their art has not only outlived the artists, but also those bozo self-described, self-righteous critics. Why are people so afraid of new thought or new ideas? Our country is filled with such mindless know-nothing Nazis who think art should be the schlocky, schmaltzy crap that is produced by that "painter of light", Thomas Kinkaid. It appeals to people who think real art is sold in Sears. They have no idea what art is, how it reflects our society and our feelings, not just what we see. They are mistaking "craft" for vision, originality, spontaneity, and self-expression. They've also NEVER set foot in a museum...just their fat lazy asses into barcaloungers. But history is their judge. With the works of Pollack, DeKooning, Basquiat, Klein, Rothko, DuBuffet and many other abstract and raw artists selling in the millions, the art of their traditional "masters" sells as cheap posters in malls. And that's where that type of stuff belongs: in Double-wides.I have watched the progression of your pieces and artwork from your first days on the internet (yes, ebay), and I'm very impressed with your evolution as an artist and your expression of your insights onto canvas.By the way, I am an artist also. But I am also a professional architect and a professional interior designer. Fuck these so-called "critics" who know nothing about art...they are amateurs. And if they think what you or I do is easy, they should put their "talent" where their loud mouths are, and create something themselves.... it's harder than they childishly think. And it is also easier for them to talk because they themselves lack the ability or creativity to "do". So, Kelly, keep DOING. Larry was submitted by Larry D.

But I suppose they console themselves with the notion that they are more "sophisticated" and "artistic" than me and the other HONEST critics; it makes them feel better about themselves and their own pathetic lack of the true talent, patience, and dedication necessary to create genuine art!

Hi Kelly! I have been working as a professional illustrator for several years. My work has been purchased by clients worldwide, I have been featured in several design/illustration annuals and I have won some pretty fancy awards. Although illustation is more commercial than art you still need a sense of colour, form and aestetichs. (And I do paint on the side also) Im only telling this to give some idea of my level of experience and background for having opinions on your work. And I dare say it's brilliant! You are a TRUE artist and to all the envious wannabe and obviously unsucessfull "artists" out there who dare to say otherwise I recommend that they go screw themselves. Or - simply realize that the level of hatred they seem to feel towards your work and success probably steems from beeing untalented themselves. Attending artschool does NOT automatic make you an artist! Neither does beeing able to draw naturalistic. The whole point of artschools is to teach basics so that you can evolve and create your OWN UNIQE STYLE. Some people express a unique style naturally AKA autodidacts. As for that lameass Ben quote; some of the worlds greatest writers have never attended writing classes or majored in english (or their native language) Does that make them fools?! was submitted by Nina - Norway () on Monday, August 2, 2004 at 07:29:34

Frankly, your "art" is worthless, tasteless trash. If it "says" anything at all, it says, "Look at me! I'm a wannabepseudo-artist, like that no-talent dopehead Basquiat." Just remember what Benjamin Franklin said, "He that teaches himself hath a fool for a master." Old Ben hit the nail on the head in your case!
