The new painting Citadel  which I created for this exhibtion is part of a series of paintings I am developing based on images of artificial islands being built by China over five hundred miles off their coast in contested waters.  The islands are created by moving sediment from the seafloor to a reef and construction includes built port facilities, military buildings and airstrips. The speed and scale of the building spree is somewhat alarming and is straining geopolitical tensions that are already taut.
