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.
Rosebud Saint features the juxtaposition of a Guatemalan santo, a chalet-shaped shelf turned upside down, a kitchen cupboard door, two drawer pulls, a metal coaster and a polymer medallion of the Virgin Mary. I like to pair the rustic interpretations of the Virgin with the more polished, European depictions; it speaks to me of universal experience across time and space.
