120 cm x 100 cm
Originally from the Wirral, Steve Moon has been living in Chester for eight years. He has done art for as long as he can remember and has been painting in oils since he was eleven. In the last ten years Steve has worked in acrylics more than oils but he enjoys experimenting with different mediums and styles. Steve says that he is not a ‘fully professional artist’ but is fortunate to have a day job that gives him half of the year off. In the last few years much of his off time Steve spent in his studio.
'I was exploring how famous art can often be little more than background decoration. The original idea was to fill foreground with a selfie taking crowd, seemingly using the huge Matisse cut out as a backdrop, however the composition evolved during the painting into something more decorative. '
