• Andy Moses: Recent Works

    The paintings of Andy Moses possess an intense magnetism defined by a palette of hypnotic pearlescent hues.  The solo exhibition Recent Works on view at William Turner Gallery presents large-scale circular, hexagonal, and concave wood panels treated with a skillful hand conducting colors like a synesthesia symphony.  Oil and acrylic paint charge the surfaces, however, […]

  • Rainer Hosch: Apocalypse Now

    The outstretched branches of the Joshua tree quiver with fiery spiky leaves and recede into the horizon. The single trunk that supports the once-thriving plant species still stands despite enduring intense heat and the unforgiving wrath of flames.  Rainer Hosch’s documentation of the scorched earth in the aftermath of the Dome fire, just one of […]
