Dreams always seem more possible at night; even more so when it’s a bright full moon. Midnight Moon has no obscure themes to comprehend; instead we have a conventional atmospheric scene of peace and tranquillity.
The bright full moon soaks up the suns energy that illuminates some passing clouds - bathing them in rich yellows and oranges. The canvas has a highly visible textured surface - created using plaster and ink and very much an expressionist surface artwork.
The art has been made out of plaster, yet, the plaster has not been sculptured, cast, rolled or applied by knife - and so you look closer and wonder more deeply about the technique. The tools used are simply a pipette, finger and thumb and palette knife - acrylic ink, either pure or diluted, provide the colour that the plaster absorbs. Apply the pigment sprinkle the plaster - allow for drying - then scrape, seal and repeat the process over and over until the desired effect is reached.
