Todd Monaghan, 2021, 36"/36"/.75", gesso, egg shell, oil marker on canvas.
Gateway to a Lunar Equation, part of Monaghan's Rehoboth Beach Residency collection, was created from a repurposed canvas, an ongoing imperative for this particular series. Most of the canvas have been acquired at local second hand stores in the beach town. This piece is a further exploration of space and time, the universe and the binds and intersections between all of us. A continuation of Monaghan's black and white series, this piece explores what Monaghan refers to as the seen and unseen universe. Orbs and particles are the planets and the cells and molecules that exist in the smallest and the largest parts of the universe.
