“The Accident” is a painting I created after the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, here in the U.S. The landscape was rendered in a style reminiscent of the popular American artist Grant Wood, and features a window-less school bus letting off a student, who races into her windowless home, dropping her books in the driveway. The scene illustrates the acceptance of the dangers of nuclear power, which at the time in the U.S. was very controversial.
I developed this series of surrealistic drawings, paintings and animations over the course of 40 years. I consider these works my most vivid day dreams, nightmares, and fevered visions. The works reflect the yearnings of my over-passionate soul: my fears for myself and my children, my neighbors and strangers, and all of the anxieties I have for this planet I call home.
