Sculpture Series: Ghosts of Katrina

A continuation of a series inspired by the “Ghosts of Katrina” I drew upon my memories of the colorful mesmerizing and sometimes seedy characters of a small Louisiana town just across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans where I spent my early childhood. Along with my childhood home, many neighborhoods in this town and the surrounding areas were destroyed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in the days following its August 29, 2005 hard-hitting arrival. These are among the faces I image haunting the devastation and empty streets.
