The painting, Suncatcher, hung in the artist’s Waynesboro, Virginia home for many years. The home, a renovated apple packing barn, has for many years been the location of quarterly signings by the artist at her residence. The original watercolor is a very large painting, but when printed in 2010 was printed in three sizes as a giclée.
As with most Moss art, Suncatcher is replete with symbolism. The golden landscape defined by the “Grand-Z” the z-shaped brushstrokes that are part of Moss’ trademark style, create multiple horizon lines. Parts of the paper are left without pigment, referred to as negative space, is used to create the light within the image. The golden hues are symbolic of spiritual wealth or abundance. The church visible on the far horizon is a symbol of faith; the barn is a symbol of a traditional lifestyle and indicates the human element that is simply insinuated by the presence of the buildings.
Issued in 2010. Giclée on paper.
