Ed Moses

Born 1926

A restless and protean painter, Ed Moses has explored many styles throughout his five-decade career, from Abstract Expressionism to Minimalism and all points in between. In the process, he has created a diverse body of predominantly abstract and non-objective art that has remained true to his personal trajectory while being consistently in touch with the times. One shared characteristic of his works is that they have tended, in recent decades at least, to be produced without a brush - their luminous effects created using an arsenal of palette knives, squeegees, mops and masking tape. But Moses is not the kind of artist who is content to be restricted by formal conventions, and his work is bound together more strongly by it intrinsic sensuality and visual intelligence.

While studying at UCLA, Los Angeles in the early 1950's, Moses became a technical illustrator at an aircraft factory. His graphic training is evident in the paintings of this period - clean-lined, frontal compositions that focus on deserted factories and L.A. boardwalks. But it was not until the late 50's that Moses, having seen the first Abstract Expressionist exhibition in Los Angeles, began truly to find his feet in painting. Executed on pale and creamy grounds, his newly animated canvases began to mix strident blasts of color with fine, nervy marks that hover on the verge of figuration.

However, by the early 60s, Moses had already moved on. Increasingly interested in surface and structure, he devoted himself for most of the decade to drawing. He began by making dark-toned and serene works in graphite and silver paint; images built up from massed unitary marks, between which could be seen fragile representations of roses. As the decade wore on, Moses - apparently inspired by a trip to the dentist, where he had a cavity filled - made drawings in which he carefully packed grids with regular, vertical strokes in an attempt to fit the maximum visual information into each work. At this point he was seemingly working in a minimalist territory, but the images he produced maintained a degree of expressiveness that set them apart.

The following decade saw Moses' work gradually divest itself of representational qualities and, simultaneously, move away from conventional techniques of application. He made a series of works that featured geometric designs created using a pigment-saturated chalk-line, and an effusively warm-hued effect created by letting resin seep through from the back of the canvas. Beginning to study non-Western cultures, he used motifs from Indian Navajo blankets in his paintings, and began a study of Tibetan Buddhism, which oriented him in relation to the constantly changing style of his work and kept him from striving towards one particular goal. In the subsequent 'NY Trac' paintings and their aesthetic successors, the monochromatic 'Cubist Paintings', he embraced multiplicity and Cubism, overlaying a superfluity of diagonal grids to create a pictorial space that was simultaneously flatly graphic and spatially illusionistic.

By the early 80's, Moses' work had taken on a new visceral quality that was in keeping with the changing times - this was the era of Neo- Expressionism - and featured some of his most inventive thinking in terms of paint application, using spray-guns, templates, and gestural brushstrokes in the same work. The works of the late 80s and early 90s, full of movement and sinister vitality, are translucent aggregations featuring swathes of dragged paint, massed-up stains, and cracked, snaking paint-strokes that Moses aptly titled 'wormies'. He returned, and continues in recent works to return to established motifs such as the overlaid grids, worrying them, testing their iconographic capacity. By the mid-90's, he was playing these unyielding forms against turbid smears; later in the decade he created an impressive series of velvety abstractions using a squeegee. These paintings, and the recent works on paper that feature skulls and wormlike forms, appear to dwell increasingly on mortality. But in their verve, invention and grandeur, they are unarguably filled with life.
