About the Book

Saturated with rhythm-generating patterns and inherently directional shapes, the work of British abstract painter Jeremy Moon (1934-1973) subverts the static quality of painting with its formations of perceptible movement.
Best known for his large scale geometric paintings that explore form and space through unmodulated planes of colour, Moon embraced imperfection and incorporated subtle asymmetries to deliberately destabilise the unity of his compositions, further challenging the austerity associated with geometric abstraction.
Jeremy Moon: Free Flight traces the artist's short, yet prolific career from his emergence onto the London art scene in the early 1960s. Alongside critical texts and interviews, this title features an overview of Moon's preparatory drawings, paintings and sculptures, as well as facsimiles of archive materials from the artist's estate.
Moon's hand-drawn inventory of completed paintings and sculptures reveals the importance of drawings as integral components to his artistic process, and as the start and end points in which his experimental ideas took their purest form.

Author

The English artist Jeremy Moon is perhaps best remembered for his large-scale geometric paintings, which emerged onto the 1960s London art scene in the midst of the Colour Field and abstract movements. He rapidly became a leading figure in the art world, teaching at St. Martin's School of Art and exhibiting widely until his premature death in a motorcycle accident aged 39.
