Ed Moses is one of the great Modern American Artists whose career as an abstract expressionist spans from the 1950s to the present. His works are found in prominent museums throughout the world. In 2010, at the age of 83, Ed suffered from an illness that he thought would end his ability to paint, and therefore end his desire to continue living. After medical treatment it became apparent that he would recover from his illness. During the following of his reovery, Ed had conversations with his physician about his life, art, friendships and his personal demons. The conversations were recorded, and then organized into this book. The words are essentially unedited. The title “Ed Moses: Conversations from the Cave” is a reference to one of Ed’s favorite books: “The Mind in the Cave” by David Williams. In it, the author tries to understand the markings found in caves existing over 17,000 years ago. He depicts a place of fear and mystery where man’s thoughts about life, death, and spirituality endeavor to reach beyond the phenomenal world. This book is not meant to be a review of Ed Moses’ art, but to give insight into the artist and his art through his thoughts on his life, relationships, and his work. Included is an essay by Frances Colpitt titled, Ed Moses: An Irrepressible Artist’s Life. Professor Colpitt writes about Ed Moses from the prospective of a professor of art history. Together, the writings give a unique insight into the life of Ed Moses.. People who are interested in art, art history, or those individuals who just like hear good stories will enjoy these “conversations from the cave”.
