Fountain (2/67), 1967

Moon, the leading London minimalist painter of the 1960s, sought an optical flow of pictures that seem to be at rest while at the same time give the illusion of outward movement. Over the span of a decade he developed his painting as a kind of intra-pictorial monologue. This work -- one of only 13 “Y-pictures” created in 1967 -- reveals his coming to terms with the “shaped canvases” of the American Hard Edge painters, whose works were shown in London for the first time in 1963 and 1965. The painting stands out for its coloring, complementary contrasts and dynamic orientation in space.
