A Week Or Two Ago, I ran across a book Titled, “50 Moons At A Time,” by the English Artist, Darren Almond. I don’t claim to know about art, in fact, I think my lack of knowledge is humorous to most at best. But I will tell you, though I found a large disconnect in this statement with the work, the following is one of the best statements I have ever read, starting with:
"This Body of work began seven years ago, by chance, with a photograph the duration of whose exposure coincided with the length of a kiss. That shot, Fifteen Minute Moon, sat in my studio…etc." He finishes up by saying the photos "are intentionally concerned with memory and chance, with mobilising light and time, and in the choice of locations - zones outside the urban, untouched by artificial lighting - continuing the legacy of Romantic painting."
Kinda like when Renee says, “You had me at hello…”
