JACK HOYER IN CONVERSATION WITH ADAM MOSKOWITz
December 14, 2016
Moskowitz Bayse is pleased to present Jack Hoyer in Conversation with Adam Moskowitz, coinciding with Hoyer's exhibition May Be Seen, which is on view at the gallery. May Be Seen is the culmination of ten years of the artist's work.
Seated in the exhibition, the speakers will make their private dialogue public. Together they will explore the artist's history and practice, and will address each of the paintings presented.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Jack Hoyer was born in Philadelphia in 1946; he lives and works in Los Angeles. He received a BFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 1970, and a BA from Haverford College in 1972. In 1976, he boarded a cargo ship to Japan and lived there for three years; his return to the United States was prompted in part by a quality of light necessary for his paintings. For the last thirty years he has lived, looked, and worked in relative isolation from a modest apartment, situated on the top floor of a historic Beaux Arts style building opposite MacArthur Park.
Adam Moskowitz (b. 1989, Los Angeles) is an artist and co-owner of Moskowitz Bayse. On February 24, 2013, he happened across Jack Hoyer outside the LA Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park; they have been talking about painting since.
