The full moon is the lunar phase when the Moon appears fully illuminated from Earth’s perspective. This occurs when the Earth is located between the Sun and the Moon.  This means that the lunar hemisphere facing Earth – the near side – is completely sunlit and appears as a circular disk. The full moon occurs roughly once a month.

The Moon has had an importance in human culture since the dawn of history and likely before.  Often revered as a feminine deity and counterpoint to a masculine Sun god, its monthly cycle as it passes through its phases has given life a discernible rhythm throughout time.

Moon Series
Guy Allen’s Moon Series of etchings was conceived and produced during the isolation of lockdown.  Printed on to black paper with white ink, this new direction stretched his imagination and technique but produced a luminous series.
