"The exhibition is centered around a large-scale installation, Overseas: Fireplace with Harpoons, which features a federal-style fireplace modeled after one in the period rooms in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The painting atop the mantle is of an iceberg by the Hudson River School painter Frederic Church. The vignette is punctuated with destruction, harpoons piercing the scene, an allegory for the paintbrushes of landscape painters' colonialist views of Manifest Destiny. The artist made the installation in 2006, offering a macropolitical view of the environmental crisis through the lens of colonialism". -Catskill Art Space Press Release
