A Los Angeles-based artist with a unique take on color and the relationship between space, shape and light. Andy Moses paints with pearlescent pigments on concave canvases, which curve inward like the old Cinerama movie screens of the 1950's. The effect harnesses light and causes the painting to shift in depth and contrast as the viewer moves around it. Moses also works with convex canvases, which utilize an outward curve, causing his pearlescent colors to shift and change as different amounts of light hit the surface at any given point.
"All the work I've ever done has always been about interacting with natural processes and then reacting to what those natural processes do. So it's a constant back-and-forth process until the painting is finished"
Andy Moses is in numerous important private and public collections. He received his MFA from Cal Arts and lives and works in Venice, California. Andy Moses just enjoyed a survey exhibition at the Santa Monica College Pete and Susan Barrett Art Gallery that explored 30 years of his artistic output.
