"...He's wonderful and hilarious and knows exactly what it's all about and
has earned my undying respect. What he's doing is impossible, and he knows
it. That's good art...." L.A. Weekly

Resisting "the easy and superficial descriptions..., Moore's work challenges
the consensus view more strongly in ways less acceptable than...angry
tirades and bitter attacks on consumer culture." Chicago New City

"If performance art has a radical edge, it has to be Frank Moore." Cleveland

"Transformative..." Moore "is thwarting nature in an astonishing manner, and
is fusing art, ritual and religion in ways the Eurocentric world has only
dim memories of. Espousing a kind of paganism without bite and aggression,
Frank Moore is indeed worth watching." High Performance Magazine

"Surely wonderful and mind-goosing experience." L.A. Reader
