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”
