Ed Moses is premier among the Southern California postwar abstract painters. He was among the first generation of artists to exhibit at L.A.’s legendary Ferus Gallery in 1957. At 90 years ‘young,’ he shows no sign of slowing down in a most notable career. Clement Greenberg solidified his modern art historical status in his review of Moses’ solo NY show in 1973. Ed Moses continues to work and exhibit worldwide. The William Turner Gallery took over the former Santa Monica Museum to mount “Moses@90,” a survey of his works spanning six decades, which will remain on view through June 25th.
