assemblage art, collage, ocean liner
the lifeboats are leaving
mixed media
12" x 18" x 3"
2012

this plastic ocean liner (flea market find) is going down into a world of broken parts. the bloodied lifeboats, empty, have been cut loose and are leaving. it is unclear where the people have gone. the disaster is strangely beautiful.

this was inspired by the luxury cruise liner costa concordia, which wrecked recently off the coast of italy.
