Thats All They Want
Oct 04-Nov 03
Utilizing the Hudson River School as a visual point of departure, Cobi Moules metaphorically utilizes the landscape as a stand-in for his own Christian upbringing. Thats All They Want is a synthesis of wanderlust and raison detre, where Moules creates a fantasy world in which only he exists. His compositions contain a multitude of self-portraits and narratives, each coexisting to create a parallel and/or alternate plane that invokes a sense of excitement, self-worth and play. Moules deftly manipulates the visual trope of traditional landscape painting as a way of seeking inclusion, creating a utopian space for his personal significance and queer identity.
