The Red Ring

by Christopher Moeller

For this is the Ring of Fire, and herewith, maybe, thou shalt

rekindle hearts to the valor of old in a world that grows chill.

 

-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

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.
