When I tried to photograph the oil spills on May 7, 2010 by renting a helicopter I was told BP owns the airspace and therefore I was not allowed to fly. This inspired my art series, "Oil on Water," which was shown in a satellite art show at Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland in June 2010. The series is of abstract images of the BP oil spills, with coats of resin and gold leafing.
