Artist's description:

This work belong to a series called "Islands". It is a paraphrase of the work from the German painter Arnold Böcklin in 1886.
The motives of islands and archipelagos relates to existential as the subjects detachment from the surrounding reality. As islands in a sea. The subject is according to Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, by definition detached - "a reflection in otherness within at itself". It is precisely by observing from the outside, by separating itself from the environment, that its status as subject arises.
On the other hand, the island-motive also evokes the famous quote of John Locke -"No man is an island". In fact, every human being is connected underneath the surface, and we can´t exist without each other. Humanism and empathy is, in the wake of the present global refugee crises is , of utmost importance.
