Post Katrina no insects, no birds, no life.
All objects big and small destroyed.
Slowly things came back, alive and anew.
Hardware stores became a life line to recovery.
I revelled and honed in on hardware.
I made a decision to make objects from off the shelf parts.
As time has gone on, life and man’s litter once again fills the streets. Found objects, such as smashed soda cans find their way creeping back into my work. It’s fitting that this insect would be a “Coke Roach”. My sense of humor has once again returned.
