Although created in the 1990s "Austin" exemplifies not only John Moore's work throughout the 1980s, but is also characteristic of the Neo-Expressionist style from the 1970s and 1980s. A movement that reacted to the sparseness of minimalism and conceptualism, Neo-Expressionism revived the gestural qualities of 1950s Abstract Expressionism in combination with personal, and often, narrative aspects. The lithograph, "Austin," 1993 encompasses these elements. The title refers to the place Moore created the print, Austin, Texas, when the artist was a guest artist at the University of Texas. Additionally, Moore, an African-American artist, uses a limited color palette and black oval forms in his work that often represent figures or mirrors to explore questions of existence and social concerns.
