They are alibis for painterly questions about surface, shadow, texture, and patterns. These characters only exist in the painters’ studio and often find their way onto several of the painter’s canvasses, where they develop new storylines. In his large-scale paintings, these portraits become the stage actors and actresses, flaneurs, dandies, dancers, musicians, and travellers. Some figures have accompanied the artist since the beginning of his artistic career, like the bearded man who, in this show, takes on the role of a rower who travels across the water and guides other travellers there with him. For Mosley, the visual anchor of the boat offers similar escapism as previous motifs of camels, cacti, Stetson hats, stage curtains, and characters plundered from Greek myth. Resembling our human need for stories, Mosley references stories that are based on fiction: Greek myth, fables, ancient narratives, and folklore.
