Artist Statement

Moses' cartooned and animated abstract paintings included in this exhibit reflect the end points of opposite choices and possibilities. Her paintings attempt to reconcile the visual influences of an east coast urban environment with the monumental rock faces and vast landscape of New Mexico. In the effort to paint resolutely the artist often uses large shapes and line to block the imagery and the excavation of past decisions to reveal the imagery anew. Moses is known for her color and painterly touch which create craggy labored surfaces in juxtaposition to the thin glazes of the under painting. The work endeavors to tell tragicomic tales of decision making, paths taken and not taken; possibilities seized or lost, this way or that.
