Julia Friedman blogs about Ed Moses: Cross-Section at the University of California Irvine University Art Gallery, on view through December 13, 2014.

Friedman writes: "Unlike many of his historical predecessors in the field of abstract painting...  Moses ... whose prolific and protean output spans over five decades, delegates the exegesis of his abstract paintings to scholars and critics. Meanwhile, [he] carries on 'responding to the environment,' through manipulation of painterly materials."
