"...I think, especially here in his last paintings, those he did after his trip to America, that there comes over a lot of unexpected and surprising experiences in America. You can feel this positive shock, that this voyage has produced in him..." said Prof. K.R.H. Sonderborg about America Wand at the opening of Iz Maglow's solo-exhibition at State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart (1985).

All artwork are part of one big wall installation, that is organized like a classic Italian mural painting. But in this installation all separating elements are dominating the artwork and are continuing in each single painting to express the overwhelming and irritating impression of a voyage through a strange, new world.
