The project was of interest to us as this, then marginalised, body of paintings contained a relaxed and playful attitude to formalism which seemed at odds to the time they were made, and of specific interest to painters re-investigating the legacies of abstraction in a contemporary context.
Subsequent to co-curating this retrospective, Moon’s work has re-found critical success resulting in a solo presentation at Tate Britain in 2007.
A full colour catalogue accompanied this exhibition with essays by Marko Livingstone and Martin Coomer. The catalogue is available by mail order from the Harris Museum and Art Gallery.
