Andy Moses is a Los Angeles-based artist noted for his particular take on color and the relationship between space, shape and light. Moses paints with pearlescent pigments on concave canvases, which curve inward like the old Cinerama movie screens of the 1950’s.
Moses pushes the physical properties of paint through chemical reactions, viscosity interference, and gravity dispersion to create elaborate compositions that mimic nature and its forces. Moses also works with convex canvases, which utilize an outward curve, causing his pearlescent colors to shift and change as different amounts of light hit the surface at any given point.
He was in his first group exhibition at Artists Space in 1986 titled “selections”. He had his first solo exhibition in New York at Annina Nosei Gallery in 1987.
He continues to exhibit his work in New York, Los Angeles, and abroad. He moved back to Los Angeles in 2000 were he continues to refine and expand the vocabulary of his specific painting processes, imagery, and interrelationships with the technical and natural world.
“All the work I’ve ever done has always been about interacting with natural processes and then reacting to what those natural processes do. So it’s a constant back-and-forth process until the painting is finished”. – Andy Moses.
