Friday Artfest: Moonrise Kingdom from the Archicine Series by Federico Babina

Moonrise Kingdom from the Archicine Series by Federico Babina

There isn't a lot of symbolism in this piece and not a lot to interpret as far as I'm concerned. It's just the most beautiful, stripped down, version of the house from the movie Moonrise Kingdom. I just enjoy the hell out of it.



  1. I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit that I haven't yet seen Moonlight Kingdom, but it seems to me that the seam/crease down the middle of this work may be a comment of some sort. Perhaps the story in the film exposes divisions in the community of characters? It also puts me in mind of Fall of the House of Usher, so that might be a point of discussion being made by this work. Is there a theme of the madness of the community or family being exposed in the seemingly rational actions of particular characters?

    I get the feeling that the imperfections of the artwork are commenting on aspects of the film. Maybe it's the artful "imperfections" of Wes Anderson films in general?

    1. Don't be embarrassed! It's a great movie and you should definitely go see it!

      Anyway, you've seen a lot more in this painting then I did, and I'm digging your interpretation. Thanks for sharing it!
