This is the first painting in a series
of paintings relating to the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina.
The imagery is based on a concept of interest
that has condition the motif.
I have made many drawing on this subject of Hurricane Katrina using
the human figure, and looked at many photographs most to painful to
digest or recreate. The figures in this painting could be related
to each other, or perhaps it conveys a sense of loss or loneness.
What I have tried to do is convey a thought or feeling that the tragedy
of Hurricane Katrina created, juxtaposing the beauty of the human
figure. The nude figure has been omnipresent in art especially painting
from time immemorial. I have tried to create a feeling of universality.
This imagery could be (mythological, romantic, allegorical, historical)
this is for the viewer to decide.
“Art that fails to articulate a liturgical mission is a purely
decorative form of entertainment, construed to please by deception.”
(Emilio Cruz 1938 2004)
