Yet another painting that is part of my upcoming solo exhibition, H U M A N / NA T U R E, at Angela King Gallery in New Orleans. The show runs from September 25 - October 24th. The opening reception happens on Saturday, October 7th from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm with an artist talk at 7:00 pm.

A breaker can be defined as either "a heavy sea wave that breaks into white foam on the shore or a shoal" or " a person or thing that breaks something." In this case, both definitions are illustrated in the same painting.

As with many of my paintings, the composition is based on various images found on the internet; altered and combined. The trick, of course, when working with found photographs is to create a seamless image that appears to have been formed spontaneously.
