Victor Moscoso: Psychedelic Drawings 1967-1982

Featured image is a preparatory drawing for Victor Moscoso's influential 1967 poster, "Blues Project." Reproduced from Victor Moscoso: Psychedelic Drawings 1967-1982, the catalog to the fascinating exhibition on view through April 25 at Andrew Edlin Gallery, it appropriates a nude from an antique French postcard. Co-curator (along with Dan Nadel) Norman Hathaway writes, "In Moscoso’s first full-blown attempt at treating a complete text as one single mass, he flowed the letters around the nude form as if they were a curtain aligning with the outer shape of the body." He concludes, "The uncanny feeling produced by the Blues Project poster is echoed in Moscoso’s drawings for this and many other projects. Created nearly fifty years ago, they don’t suffer from any of the usual threadbare psychedelic tropes of that period. This exhibition presents for the first time the majority of the original art Moscoso created for his posters and comix and provides a rare glimpse into one of the world’s greatest living masters of drawing."
