Artist Note

Keeping the surface constantly damp allows him to move pigments around and in between the edges to exemplify the abstract nature of water. The artist views this symbolic exchange as a purification. Allowing the paint to submerge in the multitude of forms creates a boundless surface that occupies space but fails to change it fundamentally. Moon uses this theme in explaining the significance of water and its teachings.

Moon states "Water cleanses stains and grows life. The cycle of water connects the sky and the earth. Water, the beginning of life with its holy nature. I treasure water the most"
