Detail of “Splatter”

“This piece was an enormous self-imposed challenge, and all elements are made from scratch, without any photographic references. Des Moines is known for the convergence of the Raccoon and Des Moines Rivers. In this installation, I view the bus as having splashed through a river of paint.”
