The Sun & The Moon watercolor and acrylic painting.


This is my latest painting –  a departure of sorts from my usual style – it can be viewed from any angle and is a revisiting of a much earlier painting I did of the same theme.
I was imagining the flow that exists between men and women in spirit and in nature. The use of abstraction, motif and realism is deeply inspired by the symbolist and Art Nouveau art of Gustav Klimt.

As you can see in the pictures below, I pretty much knew exactly how I wanted this work to come out.

I used gold acrylic paint and patterns reminiscent of Medieval manuscripts which we had the fortune of viewing first hand in Melbourne last year.

The masculine & feminine archetypes that are expressed in this painting are lyrically described by John :

“The Masculine and Feminine revolve
through nature and life as one.
The Sun and Moon symbolize a great
power of love and balance.”

(john lionel robson)
