Snow Bunny 1
His latest body of work explores the destruction of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in 2011, close to Hidenori's hometown of Yonezawa where he spent his childhood.
The paintings are layered, beginning with screen captures taken from a live feed of the plant over which he screenprinted images of his childhood and recent trips to the plant with his friends using a green synthetic resin called Kuricoat – sprayed on the ground at the plant to keep the radiation from becoming airborne – bringing both the real and the imaginary onto a single plane.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
It was Ishii’s love of Dutch paintings that led him to quit his studies and enrol in art college. Since he took up a brush, he has been exploring the possibilities of integrating psychological and environmental systems into self-contained worlds, where his paintings are a juxtaposition of artificial and natural patterns; always transforming, moving, energetic, destructive all at the same time.
In 2002, he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from George Mason University, and a Masters of Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2004, where he studied with Grace Hartigan, a first generation female Abstract Expressionist & Dominique Nahas, an independent curator and critic based in NY. Ishii has also been working as a print/textile designer for a reputable fashion company in NYC alongside his career as an artist.
