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.
Power of O is another simple piece that combines the Santo, an old painted metal sign for a soft drink, a house number that serves as a halo and two cedar fence boards. There is something so powerful about these carved Santos that I often choose to keep their supports very basic. This piece also speaks to the wide variety of objects/images that can serve as religious symbols in different cultures on the planet.
