Ed Moses' canvases are formal abstractions using a variety of processes to experiment with surface, creating striations, cracks, marks, and blurs that sometimes juxtaposed with hard-edge geometric abstraction. A contemporary of fellow West Coast compatriots like Wallace Berman, Billy Al Bengston, and Ed Ruscha, Moses studied at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he would receive both his BA and MA, and exhibit at the notorious Ferus gallery in 1958. He was the subject of a major retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles and received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1980. Today, his works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, among others. Moses' works are currently on view at Melissa Morgan Fine Art on El Paseo in Palm Desert, California.
