1017.   COLORFUL CREATION
        Andy Moses is a Los Angeles-based artist with a
        unique take on color and the relationship
        between space, shape and light. Mr. Moses paints
        with pearlescent pigments on concave canvases,
        which curve inward like the old Cinema movie
        screens of the 1950s. The effect harnesses light
        and causes the painting to shift in depth and
        contrast as the viewer moves around it. Take
