“My painting is the encounter between the mind’s necessity for control and its yearning to fly free…”
- Ed Moses
Ed Moses’s grid works are compositions that are simultaneously flat and spatial.
The rotated grid, on the dynamic diagonal, underscores that the world is never still - the layers evoke an infinite, deep space, and affirm the fact that all surfaces have depth.
The color choices can be understood symbolically: black stands for earth and the reality we all inhabit, red stands for blood and what makes us sentient creatures, green as a symbol of infinity. His art celebrates the everyday miracles only paint can achieve, and we celebrate what he was able to accomplish in these powerful grid works over 40 years.
