Cosmos 2000 – 2001

In this series of paintings and related works on paper and plaster cast forms I worked with a more minimal approach to my subject, which was the moon and other celestial bodies. As with the seascape paintings there was an acknowledgement of earlier Romantic painting, such as the works of Casper David Friedrich and Albert Pinkham Ryder. By reducing the figure/ground relationship to a minimum I wanted the distance and stillness of the subject to dominate the composition.
