When I painted this one, I went back to an old theme from college. I used to create off-balance-designs. It goes back to the odd camera angles I noticed in horror films and the old “Batman” series from the 60s. The odd angles disturb the viewers’ sense of balance and make viewers uneasy. The painting is my reaction to the horrific images from Katrina and the flood,

  1. Yes, I would think feeling off balance was a pretty common feeling for those who lived through all that. I would think it would skew your perspective on just about everything.

    I grew up watching Batman. Loved that show! :D

    Nice piece, Mo.

  2. Daisy:

    Thank you.

    During the six weeks I stayed in Memphis, I became familiar enough with the city that I felt at home. I had a chance to meet up with a few friends who live there too. That helped my state of mind some.

    Still, there was a lot of uncertainty about conditions back home. When I was able to call a neighbor and find out what happened in my neighborhood, I felt more at ease.

    Once back home, I drove around to determine what was open and what was not. In some cases I had to find substitute places to shop.
