The Naked Face

It has often been said that a face reveals character. I don’t believe it! because I’ve met some accomplished dissemblers. These faces reveal stoicism, boredom, confidence, hopelessness, joy ..and perhaps YOU see something more.

There are so many wonderful pieces of art in my collection! I decided to share with you examples that have given me pleasure over the years.

This art, of course, was created here in California by California artists whose art has achieved national and international respect.

Beginning now (with European, Asian, Latin pieces), I’ll mount successive website offerings and hope that – as you bring them into your homes – you will enjoy them as much as I have.

From 1971 – 1977, before I opened the Tobey C. Moss Gallery in 1978, I worked (and learned) at Zeitlin & Ver Brugge, at LACMA, and at Stephen White’s Gallery of Photography. I was fortunate to always be in an encouraging environment – to find mentors at the Docents of LACMA, with Jake Zeitlin and with Stephen White. Every day I ‘grew’; every day was interesting to me; every day I was happy in meeting new art, new collectors, new curators and directors.

As a result, I acquired for the Gallery the art that appealed to me. Today, I still enjoy that wonderful art but – “It’s time, the Walrus said”…….. to quote from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”, for me to share my closeted art with others….with you.

Beginning now (with European, Asian, Latin pieces), I’ll mount successive website offerings and hope that – as you bring them into your homes – you will enjoy them as much as I have.

 

Today’s offerings are based upon Relationships – between figures, forms or subjects. Jose Luis Cuevas gives us the notorious members of the Borgia family – so prominent in 15th century Italy leadership-through-murder politics….blatant cruelties with seemingly benign countenances. We continue with Kenneth Armitage’s blended figures , Jacques Lipshitz’s variations on the theme of his sculpture and Henry Moore’s serial figuration for three dimensions.
