When I arrived in Iceland, it was my plan to make some gouache paintings of small, contained worlds, like the glassy images in these two pieces: Last Map: Osolith and Last Map: Divisadero on white or blue paper. However, on my first day in my studio, I found a collage of images from the Icelandic landscape left by a previous resident. As it depicts a self-contained world, I decided to copy it in gouache, as a sort of collaboration with this unknown artist. These are just studio snapshots. I will add more professionally documented images of the piece to my website when I get home.
