2 was inspired by the Martian atmosphere. The atmosphere on Mars is filled with dust particles that refract light, turning the sky there orange-brown.
Between 2015 and 2017, Ezra painted a series of large canvases, depicting somewhat otherworldly volumes of light. The light doesn’t visibly reflect on anything, but in itself forms a kind of ‘in-between space’. These canvases were always installed in situ, or were made specifically for a space.
Each work was always given a different ‘situation number’ at the time of installation, which when combined with the number of the canvas formed a temporary title for the work.
