About The Moon Tonight… @ Arts Rush Gallery, Daikanyama
Walk over to your window. The largest window you can access. Throw open the curtains. Gaze out into the nighttime darkness. Look how it blankets the world. Do a multitude of city lights blaze defiantly, uselessly trying to annex a piece of infinity? Or does the twilight reign unchallenged. Now, turn your eyes upward. Is your piece of sky speckled with the pinprick luster of a galaxy? And what of that brightest light, that closest of neighbors, that celestial mirror that reflects just a hint of day’s burning glory onto you? Does it speak to you? Share some solemn wisdom? Or does it coldly return your gaze, giving away nothing? What of that moon tonight…?
Art Rush Gallery’s 今宵の月は。。。Exhibition, which I’ve loosely and inadequately translated as About the Moon Tonight…, offers the ruminations of 6 artists and photographers on our lonely lunar orb.
I’ll admit, I was a little lost as to how to approach this theme. So much has been said about the moon, in poetry and prose and painting, on canvas and celluloid. How to approach something so ancient and ever-present without echoing earlier voices? I found my answer when I remembered that the Moon is a satellite, beholden to the grace of Earth for its place in the cosmos. Stop by the gallery to see these new cut-paper works.
