Todd Monaghan, 2014, 84"/64"/1.5", gesso, acrylic on canvas.
Full Moon and Hubble 101 are similar size square shaped pieces in the Outer Space series. Created while examining the night sky in the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New York. This series was originally commissioned by a New York Art dealer who came for a studio visit bearing several black canvas scraps and a large circular sign and asked if I wanted them. Ironically I was initiating the upstate Catskill Mountain retreat at the time and was initiating the Night Sky series because of my new found appreciation of the night sky up there and had I began to reexamine it.
