Artwork Description:

Left behind is the lead painting in the Hurricane Katrina Series. The actual model Prettiboy represents all the pets that perished in Hurricane Katrina because pets were denied evacuation. Katrina passed my studio in Estero, Florida on August 25, 2005 and proceeded to New Orleans, Louisiana, where it became the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States. Because of its ferocity, the name Katrina has been removed from the National Weather Bureau s list of names available for future hurricanes. This group of oil paintings is conceived as an historic marker , distilled from years of residence and study,of the vulnerability of a beautiful, cultured city. There is no other Series of this type rendered 2005-9 and the challenge was to perfect forms which would enable the viewer to understand and value the experience with more appreciation than rancor. That is, appreciation from an historical perspective of what we must strive to protect in future assaults on the environment. A better name for this painting is Ja Accuse... the named and nameless entities who allowed this disaster. The preliminary stages of Left Behind can be seen in my studio p.55 where a key feature, the pets eyes, were designed to maintaineye contac twith the viewer from any vantage pointi. Three sets of pin-point eyes peering out from the tropical foliage surrounding this tree house, project the same accusative stare as the cat. The full scale feline, an iconic image representing the vulnerability of all animals, is ensconced a highly stylized display of southern flora, which despite its seemingly protective exuberance, was no match for the savage attacks of Hurricane Katrina.
