Moon & Stars

I fell in love with Alphonse Mucha in a strange way. I had collected his art through postcards and magazines my whole life and upon a random visit to Prague in 2002, I practically fell into his recently created museum. The father of “Art Nouveau” is one of my favorites and this series is one that haunts me every time I see it. I created my “Moon & Stars” in ode to him, using Photographic processes that were available 200 years ago and trying to emulate his cosmic style. I created a 4’x8′ contact frame that had lights on wheels to make these 6 hour exposures. These pieces took 6 months to make and they are my pride and joy.
