This piece is the first half of a diptych that pairs a day and night scene in which the natural elements are personified. The movement of the wind in this composition is calmed by the stillness of the moon in the second piece, which I am currently printing. I was inspired by my visit to the planetarium in Chicago when viewing ancient Arabic astronomical maps to use a divide between heavenly and earthly worlds. The dramatic weather of the city had a profound effect on me as well.
My poem on the banner reads: "And at last I know: while you feign such innocence with your longing reach, you have lost your heart to the wandering wind."
