The painting titled, “Comedy and Tragedy,” shows two stock characters from the Commedia dell'arte wearing clay comedy and tragedy masks. Commedia dell'arte was a type of European theater performance that helped form what we call theater today. It was known for its stock characters of Pierrot, an early version of the clown, and Il Capitano, a military leader. It also helped create improvisation and sketch comedy. Comedy and Tragedy masks have come to symbolize modern theater and originate from Greek theater when actors wore masks to play several roles or enhance the character’s expressions.

While the night's performance prepares to start, an eager crowd rumbles with the excited murmurs of anticipation. “Our Stories on Stage” is a collection of oil paintings created by Joshua Moore that are inspired by the performing arts. Elements of popular theater themes, backstage superstitions, classical music, and traditional clothing make up the paintings in the collection that embody theater, music, and cultural dance.

Joshua Moore collaborated with his sister, Liz Goodall, to help create the theatrical scenes in his paintings. Goodall is an award-winning costume designer from Meadowbrook Theater, the largest production in Michigan, who specializes in historical clothing. Goodall began her career making elaborate dresses for the Michigan Renaissance festival while pursuing a BA in Theatre from Michigan State University and then an MFA in Costume Design from Wayne State University.
