"Ever Sliding Mona"
Acrylic on Canvas - 100x100cm - May 2017
Mona is the PR responsible for the Moon imagery. Each evening she has to post on Instagram a new Moon photo. She does her work with a lot of application. She has heard comments on how the Moon may seem to have pretty much the same monthly faces but deep down, she knows they are all different. It has been years since she was mentioned by anyone. She thought about failing to post an image one night just to see everyone’s reaction. She knows that it would make her lose her job and she would be immediately replaced by any of the queuing Monas. But one night, as she was taking her nightly photo, the Moon started to move and hop around. “Now what?” says Mona ever so slightly annoyed. Unable to take the photo, Mona started to watch the show. And the Moon danced, and hopped and slid over all the Earth oceans. And for a second, Mona forgot about the photo and slid her gaze over the oceans with the Moon.
