I've known Moonear Khar primarily as a curator of experimental/ abstract music in Minneapolis, starting at the Walker Church in Minneapolis about 15 years ago and currently producing a monthly series at the relocated House of Balls on the West Bank. I only discovered his paintings a couple years ago. He said that when he came to the U.S.his first summer was spent at a lake home where he would hear these birds trilling at night. The loon is our State Bird in Minnesota and I love the local reference. I also appreciate the pairing of the loon with "la lune" even though Moonear tells me that was never his intention.
