SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Brian Gross Fine Art presents Airborne, an exhibition of works by renowned California painter Ed Moses. On view will be selected works from a 2007 series that explores atmosphere and abstraction. Lush applications of paint in light, airy hues lend the paintings an ephemeral quality suggestive of mountain air and meteorological phenomena. Seen as a group, they describe a dynamic, vaporous, and sensually charged environment.

Ed Moses was born in Long Beach, California, in 1926 and received his BA and MA from the University of California, Los Angeles. His career began in the legendary Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1958; in the same year he exhibited at the Dilexi Gallery in San Francisco. In 1996, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles presented a full-scale retrospective of his career. His work is included in the public collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Menil Foundation, Houston; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others.

He has remained in the Los Angeles area much of his life and is one of that city's outstanding abstract artists. In the course of his career he has explored many styles. Initially drawn to abstract expressionism, he has also shown interest in color field painting and in minimalism. His work ranges from compositions featuring repeated decorative patterns to hard-edged geometric designs. Color is not used to describe objects, but rather to establish pure aesthetic experience. His graphics, such as the Wedge prints, reveal his interest in the ways in which the process and materials are united to become the image, purely abstract and referring only to itself. In these works, layers of pigment-impregnated paper are superimposed, creating interpenetrating planes of color imbedded in the physical matter. The overlapping facets of color and geometric patterns of the Wedges suggest the designs of Navajo Indians, but the image is removed from that context to stand alone as an independent abstract work of art.
