Description

The Chapel Art Center is pleased to present the exhibition Anthony Moore: PAVISE, showcasing a series of magnificent modern painted pavises by London-born artist Anthony Moore.

A pavise is a large, convex shield used by archers and crossbowmen in medieval Europe. They were often painted with a soldier's coat of arms and sometimes featured depictions of saints or religious icons. Historical pavises were objects of beauty as well as utility.

Anthony Moore was inspired to create his series of modern pavises after encountering a medieval pavise at the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, Massachusetts. Moore's pavises take the form of elongated shields adorned with transcendent painted scenes referencing painting traditions of the Northern Renaissance, stained glass, and modern collage. Moore's painting blends abstraction and representation to produce beautiful, colorful compositions with multiple layered symbolic meanings.

The Chapel Art Center is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. Admission is free.

Anthony Moore is represented by Childs Gallery, Boston.
