    About The Work

    Moonlight on the Coast of Maine (Peace) is from the still life series Remember Moonlight by artist Matthew López-Jensen. Each image in the series features a historic postcard carefully arranged with the postal ephemera used to mail that postcard to the artist. The stamps, envelopes, receipts, cardboard, and other protective material, combine with the postcard to create historical collages. The large-scale prints allow viewers to carefully study the various printing processes, subjects, and materials contained within each combination.

    The advent of electric light changed our relationship with the landscape and how we moved through the outdoors. Streetlights, flashing signs, flashlights, and house windows glowing with electric light, supplanted our reliance on moonlight. Celebrating moonlight became a popular trend in postcard imagery by the early 1900s. Nearly every landscape with a postcard had a version featuring moonlight. The artist Matthew López-Jensen began his collection of moonlight postcards as a response to an earlier work, The 49 States, which used the sun and Google Street View to comment on how our experience of landscape would be forever changed by this new technology.
