Faces of the Moon

2008 - 2013 | Acrylic on Canvas | 5 canvases  x 100 x 100 cm



This series of paintings was dreamt up with one eye peering through a large home telescope for long periods of time. 


'Faces of the Moon' is done in two colours  and explores my own face as I move through my biorhythmic cycle. In this piece, I can't help seeing the link between my own cycles and those of the solar system as a whole.


While painting I became fascinated with finding the minimum amount of information required for the human brain to make sense of what it consumes. The great physicists were able to derive laws and equations with what appeared like fragments of data at the time.
