On inspiration, Ed Moses said, "Im never inspired. Im obsessed. And I look forward every day to paint."

Considered one of the most innovative and central figures of postwar West Coast art, Moses is still painting at age 90. Moses created more than 50 new works for a survey exhibition at William Turner Gallery last month.
