Description

ANN CRAVEN: TWELVE MOONS

With a lush and sensuous palette, Craven renders the changing cycles of the moon with an intimate sense of memory.

Twelve Moons presents the visionary works of American painter Ann Craven (born 1967), known for her vibrant depictions of the moon and the night sky. Through her practice of painting en plein air, Craven captures the conditions she observes over the course of the lunar cycle, which then become the inspiration for her larger monumental compositions. In an extensive series, Craven creates a captivating panorama that encompasses the cycles of the moon throughout the 2022 lunar year. Often painting from the same viewpoint, Craven’s nocturnal yet tranquil compositions sometimes only differ in the light that the moon casts on her surroundings. Twelve Moons forms a distinct chapter in Craven’s oeuvre, showcasing her ongoing fascination with the wonders of the natural phenomena that surround us.
