“I began working on the images one day out of anguish and grief and I ended up rescued by a depth of meaning I never really meant to touch. The resulting 40 images are 22 x 28 inch hand-colored photogravures combining the graffiti of New Orleans with religious imagery from San Miguel in Mexico – the dueling iconographies of the two places I call home. 

I have no final judgement to make on the subjects. Each expression is presented with its consolations and its cruelties. They are what they are and I hope the viewer finds something in them that speaks to what they themselves may have experienced, needed, or felt.”
