I spent several months in the Northeastern Icelandic town, Ólafsfjörður, in 2016 for a residency program that focused on Sound. In addition to using that time away to work on new recordings, I took a Canon and followed the birds that inhabit the region of slate mountains and black beaches of the Eyjafjörður. In greater detail, these birds show up in a few other paintings in the portfolio. This painting is based on a photograph and was made to offer the feeling of being there, a small observer in that black terrain where the daily mist from the fjord obscures the mountains. Crows fly freely through the space and the viewer is limited by a man-made fence, or a "wall". That word alone became an issue of contention, incivility and unrest in the four years that followed.
