The artwork is a representation of the artist’s individualistic views of nature — specifically, the sun and the moon. This series shows the geometrical lapses of the moon with solid colours, interspersed with marking and tracing techniques that enable the viewer to move between the different hues and to view them as an individual fragment.
The inspiration for Fendy’s work never appears in the exact same manner twice. The work chronicles specific feelings which he experiences at specific times of day and attempts to convey those emotions to the viewer.
