The Katrina Collection is a series of mixed media assemblages which incorporate storm debris from Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. There are approximately 1000 pieces in the collection to date, so most of the pieces are in the archives, located on the right hand side of the poage-just scroll down a little bit.
Happy Saint is a rare example of a Santo who looks as though he may be smiling, from a distance and in a Mona Lisa kind of way. I paired him with a metal cross of Mexican origin, and the door to a kitchen cupboard. The justaposition of the sacred and the profane in this piece points to the comonplace event of finding sacredness in everyday life.
