MOONMARE (Around #6)
Nondream art (digital, just 16 colors) 1998, by Chris Wayan
Arounds are a series of dark round drawings I'm doing, inspired by Odilon Redon's dreamlike "noirs" (charcoals starting from black) in which he worked out his childhood fears and obsessions.
This one was at first pure texture. It felt like a cold moon of burnished metal, rusted and scraped... but then, behind the curtain of coldness, a warm mare reared and peered at me. Looking for me.
Much as other nightmares, behind their frightful surfaces, are loving--looking out for you.
