David M. Roth reviews Ed Moses: LA—SAN FRANCISCO at Brian Gross Fine Art, San Francisco, on view through August 27, 2016.

Roth writes that a recent retrospective of Moses' work "revealed, at length, the artist’s many process innovations and his far-reaching influence on abstract painting, keeping it fresh when it was for so long under fire... What [this show] does, mainly, is bring to the fore a resurgent motif: the grid, an idea Moses first explored in the mid-1970s, and has reprised, at various intervals, ever since. This, and other Moses inventions, have stood the test of time; meaning, they tug at the senses in ways that are unique to Moses and no one else."
