I Thought of God was fashioned from a fragment of a piece of yard art which I dug out of a debris pilenext to an antique store, two pieces of scrap plywood, a Mexican window guard, a fork, a letter opener, and fragments from an old light fixture. The title is from an entry in the Horn Island logs of Walter Anderson. 39" x 39" SOLD
The Human Condition Most of us have probably experienced the situation this piece references. I know that there have been many times when I feel as though i have been beating my head against a wll to get something accomplished within a deadline. The elements of this piece include a headless acrylic human form, a clock, an auger, scrap wood, a wood boix and drawer from a desk. 10" x 25"
Butterfly Angel is one of a series of angels and saints within the Katrina Collection. I have repeatedly used angels as metaphor for the volunteers who have come by the thousands to help us rebuild our lives. This particular piece is especially meaningful to me as the wood "body" of the angel is a slat from a small flower barrel given to me by a friend. Katrina unassembled the barrel, and the pieces ended up in my studio. The angel's head was created from polymer clay, and taken from a mold I made of a plaster god's head I picked up in Cyprus.The wings and the doorplate are of metal, and retrieved from a debris pile on the coast. SOLD
Boogey Board Buddha was created from a boogie board that I plucked from a pile of debris on the beach in Waveland, a picture frame from another debris pile, and a Buddha head that I painted. Religious figures from all traditions hold a fascination for me and the Buddha is one of my favorites. SOLD
