Amalia Part 2: Aslan Silver Moon
The majestic lion of C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” inspires the golden color palette of this composition. Aslan paradoxically embodied both strength and sacrifice, idealism and love. The silver moon is a feminine symbol representing immortality, eternity, and enlightenment. The juxtaposition of these eternal forces connote assurance and comfort.
This abstract series is dedicated to Duchess Anna Amalia (1739-1807). As an affluent noble and influential patroness of art and literature, grand-daughter of Frederick the Great of Prussia, Anna Amalia cultivated and supported many of the greatest minds of European theatre—most notably Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller (whose poem “An die Freude” formed the nucleus of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony). As an 18th century inspiration for many women to follow, Anna Amalia founded a theatrical company, was a notable symphonic composer, and endowed a library which is now home to over 1,000,000 volumes.
