Featured item from THE LIST: Gerard Mossé at Marlborough Gallery
by David Cohen
If the opening scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey were painted by an Abstract Expressionist the result might resemble a Gerard Mossé with his typical hi-tech totem pulsating with ethereal, other worldly light. The North African-born New Yorker has a preternatural capacity to enlist color to the service of such electric glow one is tempted to check if there is wiring to the canvas or something very kinky happening with the gallery illumination. Once the eye adjusts to the prevailing chromatic reality, the paintings are ready to settle down to business of a less sensational, more spiritual import.
