Fukushima (2011 ongoing)
These paintings are based on the epic catastrophe of the 3 Full Core Meltdowns at the Fukushima Daichii Nuclear Power plant in March of 2011. It is an emotional series of paintings for me, similar to what Goya might have felt witnessing / documenting, the destruction of the Peninsula War. These paintings are my attempt to alert people to the monumental destruction to the Pacific Ocean and our entire eco-system from the ongoing radiation releases and to try, like Goya, invigorate the human conscience.
All the paintings are produced with “Polytarp” that have my trademark smooth/reflective or textured surface. (refer to my artist statement on this process)
