Twist of Fate

Here's my latest and largest piece to date. It has a somewhat personal meaning as it's a piece about Hurricane Katrina and what my sister's family went through during and after it. The tent represents New Orleans, formerly flashy and frivolous, then devastated and wilted after the hurricane. The birds are supposed to convey a somewhat spooky element, like the birds perching on the playground bars in Hitchcock's "The Birds" but they also represent life and eventually, hope for the future.  
It stands about 24" high by 20" wide and is constructed of tent canvas, wire, tissue paper, and paperclay.
