About the art
Following a trip to China in 2018, Hermione Carline has created a series of landscapes inspired by the limestone mountains rising out of the Li and Yulong rivers in the south west of the country. These pictures are transformed as a series of overlapping snapshots of reflections or mountain landscapes. Although dreamlike, the shapes of the mountains are derived accurately from drawings made at the time.
In Moonlight Sky Hermione is looking at this world as a perfectly still reflection. The luminosity of the light she has created acts as a memory of seeing an incredible light projection onto the mountains by Zhang Yimou (designer of the Beijing Olympics light show).
Hermione paints directly in multilayers of oil onto a birch plywood box panel. The sides are 3.8mm deep and are painted in a colour gradient, so the picture can be hung framed on unframed. As seen from different angles, the painting takes on a sculptural form.
