Moss is oceanic: his poems upward push, crest, crash, and upward thrust back like waves. His voice echoes the growth of the previous testomony, the fluty trill of Greek mythology, and the gongs of chinese language rituals as he writes approximately love, nature, battle, oppression, and the miracle of language. He addresses the God of the Jews, of the Christians, and of the Muslims with awe and familiarity, and chants to lesser gods of his personal invention. In each impressive poem, each track to lifestyles, appealing lifestyles, Moss, through turns giddy and sorrowful, expresses a sacred sensuality and an earthy holiness. Or placing it differently: here's a brain working in outdoor, unimpeded via model or pressured thematic concentration, profoundly catholic in point of view, right away available and erudite, unavoidably compelling. All of that is to suggest Moss's skill to take part in and regulate completely those poems whereas resisting the impulse to middle himself in them. This differentiates his attractive paintings from a lot modern breast-beating. Moss is an artist who embraces the probabilities of exultation, appreciation, reconciliation, of utmost tenderness. As such he lays down a dedication to a typical, worldly morality towards which all beings gravitate.
