Allegory of the Moon is the latest collection of paintings by Roos van der Vliet. In these works, van der Vliet allowed herself to be influenced by the romantic movement of the 19th century in general and by a poem by Sylvia Plath, ‘The Moon and the Yew Tree’ (1961), in particular.
After reading ‘The Moon and the Yew Tree’ last year, van der Vliet recognized something in herself that she hadn’t known was there, and she couldn’t let it go afterwards. She felt the urge to dive deep into the poetic, romantic, timeless part of herself that’s unaware of the current time and space, unaware of the art world, society, the superficiality of social media, followers and trends.
