Painting of hands with blue background

Ontario Power Generation Gallery

Niagara Falls History Museum

Drawing inspiration from different interactions and movements in our everyday lives, this exhibition highlights Niagara’s community, culture, and connectivity.

Empowering artwork that will allow space for authentic conversations, the collection reflects on the most frequently symbolized part of not only the human body but of human interaction. Our actions, gestures, movements, and connections remind us that the symbolism of our hands is rich and varied.

"He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist."

Wayne Moore is an artist who was born in Portland, Jamaica and raised in Toronto, Canada. His mix of vibrant colours and intricacies stems from his cultural Jamaican roots

intertwined with his passion for spreading positive, uplifting energy.

A McMaster University alumni and a CFL running-back for the BC Lions, Moore describes art as his hidden peace of mind and balance. As a sense of harmony and exploring the

other side of his mind, Moore would usually sketch and paint in his spare time off the field and out of the gym, often referring to himself as a “left brain, right brain enthusiast.”

Many appreciate his ability to enlighten viewers' eyes and minds with a collaboration of colours and textures. Moore showcases his artwork through in-depth storytelling, authentic experiences, and versatile exposure. Following his passion allows Moore to express forms of his imagination and constant ideas through his creations.

"My creative product is constantly evolving, discovering endless visions."

Moore has always enjoyed his ability to express himself creatively. He embodies his duty to seize it physically, mentally, and emotionally by sharing it with the world.

"Being able to grasp this has truly been one of the greatest decisions; All I had to do was be me and embrace my gift wholeheartedly.”
