The Spirit of the Violets

by Christopher Moeller

“On the following day search was everywhere made for Marcella; but no one could give any account of her.

In the place, however, where she used every night to sit, there was found a superb violet, concealed by grass.”

-Taxile Delord, “Flower Fairy Tales”[hr]

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.
