"The more panoramic format of Ascent, and the mix of a moonrise that has the warmth and strength of colour we would normally associate with a sunrise, has a black bunker-like form with white painted in the normally dark corners. The memory recall for me was the film 2001 A Space Odyssey and the iconic power of the monolith. This was a technical challenge in terms of viewpoint and the moonrise exposure, but the resulting work and the emotional power of the painterly tones of the shadow scale show that the risk was well worth taking."
