Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Ed Moses

May 17, 2016

Lot 88, Ed Moses, 1963

Not content to rest on his laurels as one of the greats of the Los Angeles art world, Ed Moses still makes art daily, outdoors at his Venice Beach studio. What’s more, Moses continues to attract attention. The survey of his work currently on view at the William Turner gallery in Santa Monica includes more than fifty new paintings, and last year LACMA drew large crowds of visitors with its show of his works on paper, Ed Moses: Drawings from the 1960s and 70s. Peter Loughrey, Director of Modern Design and Fine Art, joins us on the blog to talk about what makes Moses so extraordinary.

Phenomenal Sculptures: Fred Eversley and the Art of Perception

A Brooklyn-born artist, Fred Eversley moved to California in 1964 with the intention of entering the aerospace and electronics industry. Like so many transplants before him, Eversley was quickly captivated by the sea, sun, and sky, as well as the rich and groovy cultural scene of Los Angeles’s Venice Beach. Working with cast resin to create elegant and seductive sculptures with simple geometric forms, his work explores the act of visual perception. The results are not objects so much as sensory experiences. “I am involved with using art as a phenomenon,” he has said. “I am dealing with real energies, forces, space, time, and matter.” LAMA will offer a cast resin sculpture by Eversley in its February 21, 2016 Modern Art & Design Auction.
