The Island Series are my first ‘Earth Capsules’ trapping Earth as well as Pigments and Oil paint in-between Glass and Canvas. In the summer of 2015, I prepared a new series of smaller paintings for a group show, while my partner, the filmmaker Adam Horowitz, was working on a documentary on the Marshall Islands. Over the phone we both discussed a great detail of the consequences of the detonation of the biggest Hydrogen bomb Bravo on the Marshall Islands, while at the same time the wind was mixing the Earth onto my canvas. Not consciously but my new works started to take on forms with striking resemblance of the areal shots from the Marshal Islands.
