The Leap

by Christopher Moeller

“It’s only when we’re willing to let go of all of our illusions

and admit that we are lost and helpless and terrified

that we will be free of ourselves and our false securities

and ready for what Kierkegaard calls “the leap of faith.”

-Thomas Cathcart

For twenty-six years I used my art to build imaginary worlds, populated by fantastic creatures. More recently, my desire for invented worlds has given way, unexpectedly, to a love affair with this world. I am experimenting with new approaches, both in terms of subject matter and craft. I am developing my instinct for authenticity... for things with real power. I find myself drawn to landscapes, both outward and internal, that feel real. My paintings document a slow, often frustrating, recommitment to the fundamentals of art, and a reconnection to the human experience.
