The All-American Sailor Loves His Mother

Fiber glass, Styrene foam, plaster, MDF, epoxy, flocking, copper, sawdust, paint.
5' x 8' x 2'. 2005.

The piece is a temple to women in my life. Thematically it combines imagery and symbology from Moby Dick, the american dream, sailor tatoos, and the female reproductive system.

Detail of the white Whale.

Detail of the compass, and baseball diamond oasis.
