Moonlit is my first exhibition in Lancaster City, since the closing of Sunshine Art + Design. For this show I created a new body of work drawing from memories of summer nights spent along lakeshores, looking up at the Milky Way from the wooded forests of Wisconsin. Many of the pieces include an image of the moon set in a dreamlike or fantastic landscape. The places in these images are not real, but hopefully will feel familiar to viewers.
The ink drawings and embroidered thread paintings in the show are often set at night, and are, with the exception of one or two pieces, created with a limited color palate, mostly black, white, and a range of gray and neutral hues. Since I often work with vibrant colors, I enjoyed the challenge of creating work with a tonal palette. The idea of working in this limited palette began with my Inktober adventure last fall.
