Jeremy Moon, Freemasonry & the Mystical Search

Just listened to an interesting podcast at Ryan Singer's
'Me & Paranormal You' site - 
It featured a guy (comedian?) named Jeremy Moon, someone I had never heard of before and still can't find anything about him on the net yet.
But I did find some other interesting Jeremy Moon's on the net when I was Googling around trying to find the Jeremy Moon featured in the pod-cast.

Arabian Night [3/67]
Moon landing – Out of Nowhere, PEER gallery

"Paintings and drawings by influential 1960s abstract painter Jeremy Moon are making a rare appearance in public.
Paintings by Jeremy Moon are like brightly-coloured UFOs that have somehow found their way to earth.
Although an influential figure in abstract painting and the 1960s London art scene, exhibitions of Moon’s work are a rare occurence.
But now PEER gallery in Hoxton and Large Glass on Caledonian Road are jointly presenting a selection of paintings and drawings by the artist, who died in a motorbike accident in 1973 at the age of 39.
Free Flight (1964) Jeremy Moon
"Moon was one of the first artists in Britain to experiment with shaped canvases, and was known for his non-representational paintings of bright colour and geometrical clarity.
Comedy and seriousness pack this show.

The comedy comes from the paintings’ ability to anticipate our encounter with them as the act of viewing unveils layers of lightness and playful intelligence.
The interplay between the depicted and literal form is a significant development in visual language.

Out of Nowhere (1965) Jeremy Moon
"Out of Nowhere (1965) plays with the perception and optical, our eyes initially reading the circular voids as painted white holes."
Green Sound (1964) Jeremy Moon
"There’s an extraordinary freshness to the work in Out of Nowhere, which has been specially restored for the occasion.
Moon’s work feels so contemporary because the paintings look to the future, they open up and push into new spaces.
By tilting the rigidity of modernist rationalism something very human comes through, like a flower sprouting through the cracks in concrete."
Dark Side of the Moon?-)
I'm not a Freemason, but my grandfather on my mother's side was a Master Mason and oddly enough looking at the dates on Jeremy Moon's triangle paintings of 1964 that was the year my grandfather passed away, just before I came into the world in the same year.
I don't see anything wrong with Freemasonry and certainly don't see Freemasonry (Blue Lodge English style that is) as "The Illuminati" (not sure I would say that about The Scottish Rite though;-) and one day when I'm older I may just ask one about joining, even though many a Freemason has asked me to consider joining.
I just don't like getting all dressed up, I guess.

Icebreaker Philosophy

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand
everything better"
I certainly found some interesting art, videos and stories about Jeremy Moon's on the net after listening to Jeremy Moon talk to Ryan Singer, whether they were all Freemasons, or not, I don't know.
