  • COVID-19 Pandemic Working- Digital Vs Traditional

    It’s been over a year since the pandemic started. I remember the fear creeping around the edges of my life as the case numbers started creeping up, and the conversations I was having with people at the time, at times almost begging them to stay at home when they were going to the pub, or […]

  • #BeastieAry –

    So this October I had big plans. While many get excited at the prospect of the depths of winter, and the celebrations of Christmas, I am much more an autumnal spirit. The nights drawing in, and the chill in the air make me much more comfortable than the biting cold of Scottish Winter. October is […]

  • The Full Picture – First Thoughts

    I don’t know if you’ll be aware, but there was a bit of big news in the world of Josh Moir recently. I was successful in being awarded a proposal with Creative Dundee. The project is called ‘The Full Picture’ and me and three other artists are going to be looking at the barriers to […]

  • Dundee – A Story about a Beautiful Baby and some Windows

    My immediate family have lived in Dundee for as long as we can remember. Sure there are some of us who have moved away and others who moved here from other places, (my Mum is technically Glaswegian by birth) but we have all grown up in Dundee, and are as closely tied to the recent […]

  • How Shielding has effected my Art Practice

    If you follow me on any of my social media platforms you’ll no doubt have seen me both complain and compliment the Scottish Government’s Shielding protocol for people at the highest risk of complications from COVID-19. No leaving the house, no visitors, and no interaction within 2 metres with the people I live with. I […]

  • Finding your New Normal; TTWL in hindsight

    I honestly couldn’t have expected, when I was first developing the work that would go into The Things We Lost, not only my first Solo Exhibition, but also one fraught with personal meaning and symbolism, that just two years later, discourse on finding a ‘New Normal’ would be so prevalent in popular culture. These are […]

  • What I’m watching in Lockdown

    A couple of weeks ago I got a letter in the post from the Scottish Government advising me that for 12 weeks from the receipt of that letter I shouldn’t leave my house for any reason. If I needed shopping or food, assistance would be provided for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m incredibly grateful […]

  • Launching the JoshMoir.net Store

    In a time of global uncertainty, we are all looking to make sense of the dizzying new reality we find ourselves in. I’ve always used my art to connect with the world, to try and turn the Delphic confusions of life into something tangible. Now more than ever we are turning to technology to help […]

  • Remembering Kenneth Roy

    The first time I spoke to Kenneth Roy, interestingly the topic of conversation was Cancer. I was an attendee at the Young Programme, held in the beautiful Piersland House Hotel in Troon. After I had checked into my room and collected the itinerary I was filled with an immediate sense of regret. I decided I […]
