Nathanael Thayer Moss
Incision
July 2-August 1, 2015

In his show Incision, multidisciplinary artist Nathanael Thayer Moss’s new paintings explore ideas of perfection and simplicity through carefully controlled design and repetition. Drawing on influences ranging from futurist design, sci-fi film architecture, video game landscapes, and electronic music, Moss’s complex structures mutate within carefully defined constraints. With his controlled palette of black and white, Moss’s paintings become objects for meditation.

In addition to his visual work, Moss continues to produce and collaborate on a variety of projects including sculpture, installation, performance, recording production, video and design. He was included in New American Paintings: Pacific Coast Issue and has shown throughout the Portland area, as well as in New York City and Providence, RI. He earned his BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. Moss lives and works in Portland, OR
