Richard Moon

(b 1971United Kingdom. Lives and works in Basingstoke)

Richard Moon’s paintings explore the way that nostalgia alters the factual recollection of memory, clouding it with selective interpretations and ultimately, distortions of truth. Largely painted in the somber black and white hues of vintage photography, they hint at certain periods of history.

"Other subjects include broken porcelain figures, hybrid creatures with human heads, still life’s with subtle but incongruous gothic motifs sewn into the table cloth, skull. All these subjects weave their way through historical, mythological and political implications, questioning the very notion of truth and whether we can ever really be certain of a concrete, stable reality. "
