Alan J. Moores (Canadian, b. 1955) is an artist from the island of Newfoundland, Canada. In a diverse portfolio he produces, through sketching and painting, works based on the stark yet beautiful, rugged and resilient environment of Newfoundland as well as works covering the strong, active and everchanging volcanic environment of Big Island, Hawaii.
A number of pieces of the artists’ work have been used in the promotion and performance of several other artistic disciplines. In 2021, his painting of a Hawaiian Owl was used in the opening of Apo A No’eau, a Celebration of Hawaiian Craftmanship, by a Hula Halau as the theme and imagery for their presentation; and 2019, a work titled “Lights of Eternity” was used by the Twin Luminaries Art Show, in Hawaii, in both print and digital media to promote the event; another work titled “Volcano” became the center piece for both the promotion and the backdrop for the stage performance for the World Premiere of a play by a Louisville Playwright, Darcy Cleaver, called Circe & Ulysses. Directed by Mitchell Martin and performed by the Young Company of the Walden Theatre Conservatory. Exhibitions include: Arts and Letters Competition of Newfoundland & Labrador; The Art Association of Newfoundland & Labrador; Association of Hawaii Artists, Honolulu, Hawaii; Hawaii Art Alliance, Big Island, Hawaii; Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, Santa Ana, California; Annual Hui No’ Eau Art Center Show, Makawao, Hawaii; and Malama Wao Akua Show (Caring for the Realm of the Gods), Maui, Hawaii.
