Moon Shower

Stella Maria Baer began her moon paintings as an attempt to “explore the things I had dismissed as distractions—the moments in my painting that felt more like play than anything else.” She had been thinking a lot about where she grew up, after spending years trying to forget it, and she found in her cosmic explorations a subject that mirrored the colors and textures of the desert. “Painting moons and planets was a way to bleed out my memory of the desert while still moving into another place. There was a mythology of the desert that overlapped with the cosmology of space.”
