Photographer's Note

"Robert Delaunay. "Simultaneous Contrasts: Sun and Moon". Paris 1913. Oil on canvas.
Delaunay was fascinated by how the interaction of colors produces sensations of depth and movement, without reference to the natural world. In Simultaneous Contrasts that movement is the rhythm of the cosmos, for the painting's circular frame is a sign for the universe, and its flux of reds and oranges, greens and blues, is attuned to the sun and the moon, the rotation of day and night. But the star and planet, refracted by light, go undescribed in any literal way." As described in MOMA archives.

I gather the painter would have been quite pissed off with how I turned his colourfull and abstract art into colourless image which is all about connecting art with reality. I see his painting as a moon over the girl's head, perhaps shedding some light allowing her to concentrate on the task.
