This Third Friday, November 18, from 6 to 9 p.m., we open our first exhibition in our new home at 250 E. McKinley St. in downtown Phoenix.
We are thrilled to be opening our new space with a showing of spectacular works by the late abstractionist icon Ed Moses. Fearless in his explorations, Moses engaged in what he saw as the continual process of discovery for over half a century. His compositions include Braque-inspired, semi-representational scenes; abstract, allover patterns; color fields; hard-edged geometric shapes; and his late-career “crackle paintings”. Broken Loose is a curated collection of samples from Moses’ complete oeuvre that showcase the gamut of the artist’s explorations.
ED MOSES (American, 1926-2018)
Considered one of the foremost postwar abstract painters in the Southern California scene, working alongside a generation of artists known as the “cool school”, Moses was among the first artists to be shown at L.A.’s legendary Ferus Gallery in 1957. He has since been collected by a number of prominent institutions including Museum of Modern Art, NY; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C.; and Musee National d’Art Moderne, Paris.
