Ed Moses will exhibit some of his early drawings at the historic Ferus Gallery, a show to be kicked off with a pig roast in the alley on Friday, May 21st.
Ed Moses began his career with the Ferus Gallery not long after it’s opening in 1957 by Walter Hopps and Ed Kienholz. The careers of both the artist and the gallery have grown together to dominate the Southern California art scene they helped create.
The drawings exhibited show the same controlled chaos of his paintings. But there is a suggestion of figuration, and a loose, pared down quality that separates them from the dense patterns and lush colors of his mature work. They show the promise of an artist who would become famous for his ever-changing styles and experimentation in the genre of abstraction.
