The Surface of the Moon

This series of paintings explores lunar deformation and planetary geology as a model for empathy and resilience. The surface of the moon is a record of water, fire, tectonic shifts, collisions, meteorites, and the pull of the Earth. The surface we see reflecting light back to earth is the result of all of these geological deformations.
