About the Work

This life size replica of a Port-o-Potty, a portable toilet on wooden 2 x 4 supports in highly polished aluminum and stainless steel, explores everyday objects and our relationships to them. In this tongue-in-cheek outdoor sculpture, Moores literally and metaphorically “recasts” a seemingly unimportant mass-produced object asking us to observe and think about it from a social and cultural perspective. Moores earned a MFA from the University of Windsor Ontario, and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at such institutions as: the Memphis Metal Museum (TN), The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery (St. John’s, NL), Grounds for Sculpture (NJ), Art Mur (Montreal, QC), and the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (MI). Moores has taught at the University of Windsor and Brock University. He currently teaches at York University in Toronto, ON.
