Art Description

Painting: Oil

Size: 90 H x 94 W in

What inspired The Cloisters/Tsunami piece was in 2002 Boston Roman Catholic Church's archbishop had to step down because of Catholic priest sex abuse scandals. This was on going issues that Catholic Church was facing. Right after Twin Towers were destroyed, we visited New York and we also visited MET Cloisters in Manhattan. We visited the zero zone where there were still a lot of ashes at stores around the zone and smoldering and excavating were visible. Along the disasters such devastating tsunami hit Indonesia.
