Candescent Moon Revisited

Louise Martin Chew writes: “The grouping of Lunar Circle: Night (2011) with its moonlight flicker on evolving dark circles and the linear Candescent Moon Linear: No 1 (2012) that traces the progression of colour across the planet, is interspersed with the vibrating optical movement harnessed in Liquid Light: 66 Degrees (2011). These works speak to the duality in the dynamics of nature, the lunar influence on our bodies that may be overpowering, yet works against the human intellectual response. We are conditioned to resist forces larger than ourselves, even when they may overwhelm.”

Artist’s Statement about time:

I am fascinated by the nature of time and how it governs our lives and the universe we live in. In the natural world the passage of time is predominantly characterised by the existence of cycles and repetition where one phase or stage of a living, dynamic entity metamorphoses into another. I have created many series of works exploring the infinitely repetitious nature of time and the universal elements embodying this man-made construct. For example, I have had an ongoing fascination with lunar phases and the powerful effects of the moon on human life.

Mutation, morphology, light, impermanence and incessant change are at the crux of much of my work. As human knowledge shifts, so does the material world, with matter constantly engaged in a process of change on every scale: growth, evolution and entropy.

Much of my sculptural work focuses on undulating forms of waves, rhythms, dark/light relationships and the polarities of presence and absence.
