The first half moon after the new moon is called the first quarter because, at that point, the moon is one-quarter of the way through its monthly cycle of phases.

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.
