The paintings in this series were created with "automatist" inspired aesthetics. Dedicated to the Moon, they contemplate the mysterious beauty and meaning of this massive rock orbiting our planet, this timeless poet’s muse. The Moon impacts much on earth, from ocean tides to human behaviour, inspiring millennia of culture and myth.
