This painting is a superb example of Moons work as it is refreshingly disconcerting and purely visual with a preoccupation with colour.

Moon was one of a small group of abstract artists in the 1960s who were intent on returning to the basics in painting - clarity and distinctness. His exceptional sense of colour was key to the power of his art practice. This work contextualises and enriches other major 1960s abstract holdings in Southamptons permanent collection including John Hoylands '16.10.68', ArtFunded in 1997 and Robyn Dennys 'Time of Day III'. This work was purchased with additional funding from the David and Liza Brown Bequest Fund through the Art Fund.
