Artist Statement

Frank Borman and fellow Apollo VIII astronauts Anders and Lovell were the first to see the “far side” of the Moon. The topography is different than that of the “front”. I chose to show Borman with the never seen view of the Moon.


Whole cloth silk, painted with acrylic paint and Dynaflow directly onto the silk. It was quilted on a movable machine.


Silk, 80/20 batting, cotton back, polyester thread.
