Matice Moore is a black, queer, U.S. born painter and printmaker from Arizona. With a focus on linocut and working with acrylic, Matice employs abstract methods to explore themes of Blackness, grief, spirituality, and social change. While Matice studied figure drawing in 2002 as a minor during their undergraduate degree program, they did not self-identify as an “artist” until 2014 when they discovered that printmaking was a reliable way to fundraise for and otherwise connect with the Black Lives Matter movement. Since then, they have worked on a number of social campaigns, including the Trans Life and Liberation project, Trans Day of Resilience, and CulturStrike’s Visions from the Inside project.
