William Turner Gallery presents “Recent Works,” an expansive new series of paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Andy Moses. This extensive presentation marks the artist’s first solo exhibition since his highly acclaimed 30 Year Survey exhibition in 2017 at the Santa Monica College Pete and Susan Barrett Art Gallery. Call to make an appointment at 310-453-0909.
Andy Moses: Recent Works presents an artist fully engaged and at the height of his creative process, showcasing perhaps his most ambitious and diverse body of work to date. Implementing techniques that utilize the artist’s almost obsessive study of the alchemical properties of paint, Moses’s work blurs the line between abstraction and a new kind of pictorialism.
Born in Los Angeles in 1962, Andy Moses attended the legendary CalArts, studying with John Baldessari, Michael Asher and Barbara Kruger. In 1982, Moses moved to New York where he worked as a studio assistant to Pat Steir. He quickly became part of the nascent 80s art scene, and became one of the youngest artists to exhibit with Annina Nosei gallery after Jean-Michael Basquitat. During that time he developed close ties with then emerging artists like Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Rudolf Stingel and Christopher Wool. Moses returned to California in 2000, and really began to refine his explorations into the physical properties of paint that have brought him to the attention of museums and major collectors alike.
His work is included in the permanent collections of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Orange County Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum, and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation. He currently lives and works in Venice, CA.
On View: December 5, 2020 – February 10, 2021; If you would like to view the exhibition on Saturday, December 5, from 12-7pm, you must make an appointment asap.
