|Santa Monica College Gallery to Exhibit Andy Moses Retrospective|
By Lookout Staff
The exhibit "Andy Moses: A 30-year Survey," which runs from February 14 to March 25, documents the evolution of the Los Angeles artist's works, which evoke micro- and macro-cosmic worlds that are both abstract and scientifically precise.
A gallery reception will be held February 11 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.,
The exhibit "ranges from his early black-and-white works exploring galactic and microscopic imagery through chemical paint reactions, to his most recent vibrantly colored ‘dispersion’ paintings," officials said.
In the early 1980s, he moved to New York, where he began creating process-oriented works "that incorporated silkscreened science-related imagery and newsprint text," officials said.
Critics have described Moses' New York works as “meteoric and geological-looking paintings.” A decade later, he began using powdered pigments with acrylics to create "referential, yet non-objective abstractions."
The process has been described as “part painting, part science, and part ‘garage alchemy,’ in which humble materials are transformed completely.”
"Many of his recent pieces feature pearlescent pigments on canvases that are convex or concave in shape, causing the colors to shift and change like fluids as the viewer moves by them," gallery officials said.
