This is life-size mixed-media installation named, "Stuck in the Sand." The title is a play on words of the children's game, "Stuck in the Mud." The work consists of a life-size wood sandbox filled with beach sand. In and around the sandbox are ceramic tromp l'oeil objects, dolls, toys, baseballs, wood slats, and facsimiles of children's drawings on porcelain. As a whole, it is representative of debris and remnants from natural disasters, such as tsunamis, tornados, hurricanes, or man-made ones resulting from abortion, war, or other human shortcomings. The sandbox, and its 2-D monotype were exhibited in Artists of Hawai'i 2013, in the Honolulu Museum of Art on Oahu, as well as in Galerie 103 on Kaua'i in PRINT paper + Sandbox 2014.
