California-based artist Andy Moses is interested in pushing the physical properties of paint through chemical reactions, viscosity interference, and gravity to create elaborate compositions that mimic nature and its forces. His paintings are simultaneously abstract and representational, giving perceptions of natural vistas such as distant landscapes, moving water, or aerial views.
Contact Perkey Fine Art Advisor for more information on this painting and other available works by Andy Moses.

You have just two weeks left to see Made in L.A. 2012, and I hope you will. I love recommending exhibitions that can give busy people like you a unique and enlightening art experience in a single encounter. Made in L.A. 2012 is one of those events.
Featuring sixty artists, it offers a snapshot of the current art trends and practices flowing out of Los Angeles, one of the most active and energetic art communities worldwide! The emphasis is on up-and-coming and under-recognized artists, and will debut new installations, videos, sculptures, performances, and paintings produced especially for the biennial.
