'This work is part of Baum's 'Lunar Mare' series of moon reflections. This series was selected for New Contemporaries 2009 and was praised by Wolfgan Tillmans. "It`s a very specific vision - it`s definitely something I have never seen before and it is an achievement." The series forms part of an ongoing exploration of the moon and hopes to inspire the viewer to reconsider the beauty and fragility of our universe.'

Baum makes fresh and invigorating connections with an increasingly ignored nature. The young artist was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2009, where the judges included Ellen Gallagher, Saskia Olde Wolbers, John Stezaker and Wolfgang Tillmans, who reviewed over 10,000 slides and hundreds of videos to bring together the showcase of contemporary talent. Baum’s ‘Lunar Mare’ series received high praise from Wolfgang Tillmans himself: "It’s a very specific vision-it’s definitely something I have never seen before and it is an achievement."
Furthermore, Myka’s work followed on to be selected for long-term display at Arts Council England alongside only 9 other recent New Contemporaries.
