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
This month marks the three year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I decided to try and find a way to make some small, very affordable pieces to mark the anniversary. I made prints on canvas of several pieces of The Katrina Collection, and used them as the focal points of small collages which incorporate actual pieces of storm debris. These pieces range in price from $75- $150. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and availability of any particular piece.
