About the Project
In a drawing process of overlays of up to 30 layers, David Moses approaches his Silly Symphonies Series motifs, based on Walt Disney’s cartoon series from 1929–1939. In an impulsive dance, compositions full of existential content and primal human fears emerge.
The book is the stage for the dynamic, explosive works. The proportions correspond to the film format of 4:5, and a linen cover references the coarse, unprimed canvas used; the print on matte uncoated paper hints at the chalky structures of David Moses’ works.
This catalog is published on the occasion of the exhibition Dirt Track, May 1 to June 12, 2021, at Galerie Russi Klenner ↗, Berlin.
