It immediately raises a great set of questions. And if you become a question addict, which I am, you immediately have something you need to pursue." Robert Irwin 3h

artgroupprojects The venerable West Coast abstractionist, Ed Moses, was one of the original members of the legendary Ferus Gallery crew of the 1950s and made waves with his experimental permutations on canvas. Moses has participated in a number of landmark exhibitions, including “Los Angeles: 1955–1985, Birth of an Artistic Capital” at the Centre Pompidou, in Paris, and the Getty Center’s recent “Pacific Standard Time” initiative. #edmoses #CentrePompidou #westcoastabstractionist #artgroupprojects #ferusgallery #gettycenter 2d

sesrock #kenprice #kennethprice Still contemplating the fantastic Kenny Price show. "I make sensual work. The use of my work is to lead to an experience that makes life more interesting or enjoyable, like listening to music, or reading poetry... I'm trying to get feeling into my work, like joy. Sometimes I want to have an ominous quality, so that it has an edge, and humor in the form too, if possible."

sesrock #kenprice #kennethprice #ferus #ferusgallery #parraschheijnengallery #franklinparrasch #otherworldly #acareersurvey "Ad Reinhardt felt that pure abstraction was universal and that it should be empty of everything but art content. And that its degree of purity was the measure of greatness... I feel the opposite way. I think it's OK not to be in complete control, that it's good to put your own experience into the work, that work can be impure, and that it can be improved by increased complexity." Ken Price 1w

art_encounters On 8 January, 1935—in #Tupelo, Mississippi— #TheKing was born, #ElvisPresley. He'd be 81.
#AndyWarhol experimented with #Elvis' life size image from the Western movie || Flaming Star || (1960), screen printing multiple images on silver painted linen. This version, || Elvis 2 Times || (1963, @WhitneyMuseum), was part of a 37-ft long, repeating pattern of Elvis', cut into individual paintings by the #FerusGallery in #LA. #Warhol sent the roll of canvas, stretcher bars, and directions to cut the canvas into segments however the gallery saw fit.

Elvis was nearly 26 when || Flaming Star || was released. Film critics felt it was the best performance of his career. His record label released an EP, "Elvis by Request " with the the title song and another song from the film. On the flip side? Two songs you may have heard of, "Are You Lonesome Tonight," and "It's Now or Never." #PopArt #PopArtist #ModernArt #TheKingOfRocknRoll #PopCulture #ScreenPrint #WhitneyMuseum #NewWhitney #DailyArt #DailyArtist #ArtOfTheDay #ArtistOfTheDay #ArtHistory #HistoryOfArt #ArtEncounters

gregmorris3 One of the original young lions of the Ferus Gallery gang along with Ruscha, Billy Al, Peter Alexander, Larry Bell and Ed Kienholz. His ceramics are so cool and strange but the most incredible thing about them is how he achieves the insane amount of detailed coloring by applying hundreds of layers of paint and sanding each area down to achieve the desired look and texture. These are mesmerizing. #kenprice #LarryBell #edruscha #edmoses #edkienholz #robertirwin #peteralexander #billyalbengston #ferusgallery #ceramics #laartists 1mon

sesrock #edruscha #edwardruscha #ferusgallery #ferusgallery #walterhopps #johnmclaughlin #johnmclaughlinpainting #andywarhol I always loved this photo. A young Ruscha hanging out with Walter Hopps in the early sixties and Walter has a John McLaughlin and an Andy Warhol hanging in his house. Ruscha, McLaughlin and Warhol. Yeah, you could say Hopps had a good eye. 2mon
