Ann Craven paints en plein air to create exuberant depictions of the moon and night sky. These small canvases document the lunar conditions she observes at specific moments and become the source for her larger monumental compositions. Painting in a lush, sensuous palette, Craven describes the moment just past, her memories, and subjective personal experience. For her largest exhibition of these works to date, the artist transforms the gallery into a panorama representing the cycles of the moon, captured over the course of the 2022 lunar year. The works on view reveal both the serial nature of the artist’s larger endeavor and the myriad meanings the moon can convey. Collectively, they chronicle a distinct chapter in her ongoing process to creatively and beautifully encapsulate the wonders of the natural phenomena that surround us.
