Cadmium /Construction
2013
This slash of orange was to become an inspiration during the residency.

The deep cadmium orange was a reoccurring element throughout the subdued tones of the winter landscape, particularly following the then recent devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

I was drawn to the juxtaposition of cadmium as a toxic pigment but also it's use as a warning sign - to beware / to be aware. Amongst all these natural elements there was an unnatural plastic in an unnatural color to alert you to a possible danger just ahead.
