Mega Moon, 2022

vegan ink and vegan acrylic paint on stretched canvas made in South Africa (1.5m x 1.5m)

In painting Mega Moon, 2022, I aimed to create the illusion of craters, crevices and different kinds of landscapes, like when you see pictures of the moon but mine are imagined as a vast world, where even the smallest hole was painted in with black paint. I tried not to rely too much on the artificial light in a room to emphasize the bottom layer of texture by creating shadow and depth with paint. I wanted to make a fictional history on a surface; one where you can picture yourself wandering this celestial terrain, similar to when you see a miniature or maquette.
