Further proof that magic happens off the beaten path is Momo Luna’s lovely new book, Silent Echoes, just released through Blurb. Those of you acquainted with the artist through her blog are already aware of her talent and charm. She’s like a wicked-tender spirit of the night, lighthearted and serious at the same time, playful, mysterious, and intelligently naughty. In her own words:
My work is impregnated with mythology, but I love to change or knock over established realities. Often the angels in my work are malicious and the demons innocent. Gods, angels and demons often appear in my work. The humans are most of the time naked, so vulnerable, embodying emotions....
I consider my work figurative with a surrealistic touch. If you take a good look, you will discover multiple layers and depths....
All true — and the results are haunting, sometimes disturbing, and colorful in ways that might leave Mother Nature smiling and scratching her head, as if to say, “I wish I’d thought of that.”
The book, a beautiful glossy presentation of just under a hundred pages, is also graced with a sprinkling of brief poems and passages by the Holland-based artist. The words arrive unexpectedly, and pass like “silent echoes” from a dream or a fairy tale.
