Biloxi Prayer is among the simplest pieces, both visually and in the message it conveys. The support is a heating grate which represents home and hearth, and the multitude of crosses points to the strong faith of so many of the folk who make a living in the seafood industry here on the coast. The storm-twisted basket is the net in which the fish has been caught, and the painted paper is indicative of the water. The piece is a metaphor for the position in which the workers in the industry find themselves; strong prayer is called for. 28" x 28"
