Since becoming a new mom, Layla Luna's studio practice has had to continually adapt to fit her daughter’s changing needs. Compared to past series, the current work has been scaled-down in size and simplified in color palette to accommodate condensed studio time. The longest stretches to work are after her family is in bed for the night. Painting time is measured by a sweet baby’s sleeps.

"Moon Garden" honors how a landscape, that seemed like nothing more than a backdrop when experienced, can come to represent an entire period of time or a pivotal relationship. Luna compares having to paint these vast spaces and full experiences within such a limited window of time to tending a garden in the dark of night … just her and the moon.

The exhibition will remain on display through February 25.
