Moon’s painting career spans over 40 years. He began working in realistic renderings and later moved into abstract expressionism and surrealism. In the past 20 years, Moon has drawn inspiration from the imagery of untrained artists he met while working as an art therapist with the mentally ill. Their painted stories inspired Moon to create his own. This exhibit includes two of his early paintings that were created in the studio of small private psychiatric hospital where he and patients told their stories through art.
In addition to working as an artist, Moon is a professor and Graduate Program Director and Chair for the Art Therapy Program at Mount Mary College. For more information on Moon visit http://www.mtmary.edu/faculty_moon.html.
