Andy Moses - A 30 Year Survey

Page 150

Making the works entails a kind of wrangling of chaos. More than a painterly technique, his composition resembles an orchestration of observed natural phenomena: gravity, viscosity, hydrodynamics. He manipulates thickness instead of brushwork, motion instead of gesture, to replicate both natural and transformational processes, forcing idea and matter into a conscious collaboration. Such is the texture of the new visual language Moses is evolving; reaching toward an essential way in which to convey the thrilling, vertiginous simultaneity of those moments in nature when the convergence of abstract aesthetic and emotional possibilities approaches the sublime.
