American artist Ed Moses (1926–) is captured in all his eccentricities and innovations in this Childers shot. Born and raised in Los Angeles, and a 1958 graduate of the UCLA fine art program, Ed Moses would become a central figure of the postwar West Coast art scene alongside fellow Los Angeles artist Ed Ruscha. Rising to prominence with an exhibit at the esteemed Ferus Gallery in 1957, Moses would go on to have a career filled with reinvention and experimentation. Moses relocated to New York for less than a year. While in New York, Moses became acquainted with artists Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning before returning to Los Angeles. Moses is caught here with his hand raised, apparently mid-thought at his pugs lounge around him.
