Larry Moss shapes air with the use of balloons. His medium may be somewhat unique in the art world, but Moss’s creations are inspired by the greatest artists of the past. His study of more traditional works can be seen most clearly in his series of parodies of well-known masterworks. It’s through the exploration of other art that Moss explores and develops his own. All works shown here are available for purchase. Now available for sale in the Gift Shop A light-hearted gallery tour by Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle It’s never too early to teach art appreciation.
The Creators Project | Nikki S. Lee The Creators Project: One of the reasons you moved from South Korea to New York was to attend an American university. Has your academic education influenced your work? Nikki S. Lee: In my case I just felt really free. I’m sure some schools have a competitive and ambitious atmosphere, but fortunately NYU wasn’t like that—it was easy going for me. How much thought do you put into the production aspect of your work? When I first started I had no money because I was a student, however, I also don’t think that high-cost productions and expensive works are necessarily good. What kinds of still cameras do you use? Actually, I’ve only used old, manual snapshot cameras. So you’re more like an art director who conceptualizes the ideas? In my opinion, most current artists are like that. Identity is a constant theme throughout your work. Well, all of my work so far has required the active participation of people. Were the projects more about you or the people? It’s about me.

Flowers are indeed one of the most beautiful and complex structures found in nature, specifically designed to achieve the purpose of reproduction. This is a new series I have embarked on – exploded flowers which are images that show the radial symmetry of flowers, and also individual floral components.
