Moon, Amber aura
Ink on watercolour paper
These paintings of the Moon recite a zen story.
Its beauty is unreachable in material terms and yet it's available to anyone who makes the effort to recognise it. The celestial body nearest to Earth remains magnetic and elusive at the same time. The excitement of painting the Moon comes from engaging with its multitude of symbolic values : birth, death, perpetual renewal, the dark side of nature. Which colours describe the moonlight? Its supposed whiteness consists of many colours .
Throughout time and different cultures, the Moon continues to incite to creative, spiritual, sexual and prophetic disposition.
