This island, where I first traveled in the early 2000s, is truly like no other place I’ve ever visited. There is a sort of wild edginess to the atmosphere there; it’s as though everyone there has no idea, from one moment to the next, what might happen. The nightlife scene there is legendary, but there was more to it than that. What really affected me about the island was the sense of adventure and spontaneity that infused the entire place. I still try to conjure up that feeling of excitement and exploration, of “who knows where this might end up?” when I am composing a new painting.—Andrew Tedesco
