Ed Moses - Beyond the Myth - Invitation to journalists and critics
Scheduled for Spring 2020
This substantial monograph on the iconic Los Angeles painter Ed Moses will provide the first comprehensive analysis of the artist’s work since his death at the age of 90 in 2018.
Early invitation to critics and journalist for exclusive access to content.
Tracing the development of his distinctive style from his earliest known paintings of the Venice boardwalk made as a student at UCLA in the mid 1950s to the powerful indefinable abstract canvas’ that have defined the artist’s career, the book will explore the themes that have underpinned his diverse practise.
Based on unprecedented access to Moses’ studio and archives, as well as interviews with those who knew him, from Ferus artists to studio assistants, gallerists and curators, Richard Davey’s text will highlight the overarching concerns that connect more than sixty years of artistic practice.
We’re inviting journalists and critics to register their interest for exclusive access to content that brings to life the work and life of LA’s most inventive painter.
A much loved personality on the LA art scene, we will provide content including unseen archive material, unseen work, video and photography that goes beyond the ‘myth’ of of the artist to provide insight into one of the most talented painters of the twentieth and twenty-first century.
