5. WORK FROM 1997 - 2000 > L'Homme du Sud 1997 & Visions & Sediment 2000

L'Homme du Sud is a series of work that assembles a vision of the Southern man and woman, taking into account diverse influences such as religion, the land, folklore, history, and government that has framed the Southern person. The image assembled is influenced by Far Eastern models and is akin to body maps that integrate the physical and the mental.
