Art

The Moths & Monoliths Arts explores the inexplicable nature of the human condition, a catalyst for death awareness and an exploration of the ‘darker’ spheres of the human mind. Rather than avoiding the inevitable truth that is death, it is married with beauty in a minimal, provoking and somewhat illicit manner.

The current work in progress is influenced by the Black Metal genre and natures wondrous purification process: the blackening which follows the flames. Inspired by the untamed mountains of the Australian forest, details are plucked and gently woven with Scandinavian darkness to form the these fragile yet unapologetic pieces. 

“Bathe in the clear cold stream
Fresh water from the unsullied endless spring that flows from the mountain
We will sing the most ancient song
Spark the fire upon dry tinder”

– Wolves in the Throne Room, Part of song “Cleansing”, Album “Two Hunters” 2007.

  1. From where I’m sitting — in the Norwegian dark, there’s much to enjoy here! And I would love to see more of your art! Sadly, some links seem to be broken.

    Either that, or your website is as minimalistic and barren as the reflection that in the end, no matter what we put online or do online (or in real life, for that matter), nothing matters.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I actually wrote some of them in that very darkness when I visited not long ago. Yes, my website is out of order at the moment, my apologies, either way you’re right about the nothingness.
