Between full and last quarter moon, late at night or in the early morning, you may see the moon in its waning gibbous phase: less than full but more than half-lighted. A full moon rises just at sunset. A waning gibbous moon rises later at night and appears in the morning sky.

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.
