Castor Gallery is pleased to announce Andy Gershon, Moon Portraits, an exhibition of 9 new screen printed compositions and three photographs by New York based artist, Andy Gershon. This exhibition will be the artist’s second solo exhibition with Castor Gallery.
Moon Portraits is a new body of photographic work based on Gershon’s images of the moon, captured by his telescope and transferred to silkscreens, creating immersive compositions of celestial moments. Gershon’s screen-prints offer a reimagined imagery of the moon’s phases; its shadows and brightnesses taking on novel, vibrant hues that reverberate vividly.
In Moon Portraits, Gershon augments the subjects into colorful combinations that act like gravitational forces, turning each print into a magnetic focal point that reimagines a familiar feature, seeing it anew, unique and numinous. Gershon’s documentation and recomposition of elemental forces render these moments as markers, contemplating permanence and finitude.
