L.A. Artcore offers a group exhibition featuring Andy Moses, Ned Evans and Stephen Robert Johns, all of whom live and work in Los Angeles.

Sun-Feb2-AndyMoses LArtcore invite email“I selected Andy Moses and Ned Evans to show with me for a few reasons. Andy’s shaped canvases, shimmering compositions and his unique processes for applying paint collude to create rhythm and motion using the laws of fluid dynamics. Ned’s directional, repeating geometry, elaborated detail, and selective color play generates lively, paradoxical pictorial spaces. And my own uses of the grid motif, striking color fields, and black and white patterns is equally, along with my long-time friends (and fellow ocean and surf aficionados), involved in charting the continuum between abstraction and the physical world.” — Stephen Robert Johns, Elements artist and curator

There will also be a conversation with the artists at 4 pm.
