Moses E. Hoskins
As a visual fine artist, it is customary for me to work abstractly or nonrepresentationally in conventional mixed media; painting and drawing combined. Everything I do is manual. My work is made with old media: cotton canvas on wood stretchers, paint, drawing media and paper.
Attention is focused upon line and edge, the tactile properties of the material, color and spatial relationships, balance or imbalance; any factors, components, consideration or discernment engaged or enacted during the process of visual composition.
Exploration and refinement of aesthetic criteria comprise my motivation.
