Ed Moses, Abstract Expressionist: Coming to Venice
Artist Ed Moses was the only abstract expressionist among the Ferus Group, creating a link between the rebellious emotions of New York and the cool aesthetic of the West. Considered the bad boy of the L.A. art scene of the 1960's, Moses moved to Venice looking for a studio space where he could lay his canvases on the floor and paint. Unlike his East Coast counterparts, Moses's work felt more public and formally daring, especially with color; suggesting that the outdoor light and hues of Venice may have played a key role in shaping the direction of his work.
