South by Southeast  has at its center a wonderful, horn and wood carved face of a Buddha I acquired from some folks who were cleaning out a storm damaged building. The figure was paired with two carved Chinese panels, a piece of embossed sheet metal, a circular Chinese platter from that same sale, and a rusted Mexican frame. The frame was a survivor of Hurricane Rita, which blew through Mississippi and Louisiana just weeks after Katrina. My interest in humanity's religious beliefs surfaces often in my work, and the Buddha is a favorite theme of mine.  Sold
