Moonlight is sculpture.
– Nathaniel Hawthorn
“Tell me the story..
About how the sun loved the moon so much..
That she died every night..
Just to let him breathe …”
― Hanako Ishii
A collaborative installation at the Lone Star (one of several we’ve undertaken) between myself, Charlie Evans, Mark D Powers, and Dicky Krolewicz, The Moon was installed at the Lone Star during October 2021. Conceived by Charlie, painted by Mark and Charlie with animations by myself and Dicky.
While researching the moon and looking for images for this project, I found the wonderfully different ways cultures around the world view it. Some see it as feminine, others see it as masculine. Others see different animals in the craters of the moon, some see a face of a person, or a child. The moon is something that all cultures have looked to and saw themselves reflected back in some meaningful way. “The Moon” is a celebration of all different ways the moon affects and delights us.
