Shroud is one of the first pieces in the series, and remains one of my favorites. The piece was inspired by and built around what I believe to be the quintessential image of Hurricane Katrina. On the beach in Waveland, this damaged tree caught a length of fabric hurled by the storm. It happened to drape in a fashion that was powerfully human. Conjuring up thoughts of sacrifice as it does, it perfectly portrays the feelings of so many people along the coast. The piece was created from a metal serving platter; a portion of a mixed media painting; decorative wood; crate fragment, gauze; and digital images. 16" x 32" SOLD
