For Pinker, humour was an integral part of the conceptualisation of his painting. In Sun and moon flower, he plays with words, form and colour by juxtaposing an orange disc-like sun not with a glowing full moon, as might be expected, but rather with a view of a moonflower, which only blooms at night, seen from below.
