The Floating City: New Orleans After the Flood
paintings about the world turned upside down and the longing for home
In 2006, I responded to with a series of abstract "flood scapes",' After the Flood. Three years later, I revisit the ninth ward with The Floating City. The impossibility of painting the physical reality of the flood allowed me to focus on the emotional reality of an inexorably altered landscape. My primary goal is to convey the sense of devastation and loss as well as to offer hope for the city of New Orleans.
