My “Moongazer”” series portrays ancient legends that describe the power of the moon to radiate magic spells and cause people to oscillate crazily between sanity and lunacy. How appropriate for the range of behaviours we’ve seen during the pandemic. When we look back, I wonder if we’ll celebrate or go mad with despair.
Kim Craig is an American mixed media artist who has lived most of her life in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Her work is inspired by current social issues and relationships between diverse cultures. She is intrigued by the connections between past and present and, in order to make sense of the world we live in, her work frequently abstracts meaning from ancient cities and archeological sites in order to create contemporary stories. By imagining how we might look back at the past in the future, she hopes her work will tell a colorful and meaningful story of today.
