Lunar Spots. Collagraph 43 ½ x 20” 2017

In our lifetime a man walked on the moon. Today there is renewed interest in comprehensive lunar exploration.  The moon possesses abundant raw materials, gold and platinum, rare earth metals, and water. Regarding the moon as a consumable resource is a unique way to contemplate our celestial companion.

Inspired by NASA photographs and drawings by Galileo, I am on a journey into lunar abstractions. Creating collagraphs, monotypes and digitally altered images, I explore formations of impact craters and ponder the past, the present, and future missions to the moon.
