About the image:
“As a child, we would often visit my mother’s family in Vacherie, Louisiana, a small settlement that resides along the banks of the Mississippi. We were warned not to go down to the levee near the river. We could stand on the levee with an adult but we couldn’t get close to the river. This water iconography has stayed with me, and I use many different types of symbols to convey calm, flowing, turbulent waters, swirls, flowing lines and horizontal lines.” — FXP
