Graphic representations of Arizona’s unique plant life were the inspiration for his botanical themed panels, the first pieces created at The Oxide Studio. His photographic background influenced the choice to “frame” each design within the confines of a rectangle, producing a contemporary, somewhat formal presentation that contrasts well with the colors and organic forms in its environment.
The OXIDE studio has evolved over the years and Daniel Moore has been commissioned to create many works on all scales for both residential and commercial clients. The last few years have seen him move into the Public Art arena, an area he is strongly drawn to. His completed projects include inspired sculptural pieces, memorable freestanding works, gateways, enclosures, furniture and more. He has always thought that simple, elegant designs are the most impactful. His pieces reflect a desire to combine iconic design with a medium that reflects a sense of timelessness and permanence while expressing the visions of the client.
The Oxide Studio is located at his
home in the Willo Historic District in
downtown Phoenix, which he shares
with his wife Nina, youngest of three
daughters, Sade, their two dogs,
and three cats.
