Floods Aftermath and Other Hurricane Stories is a series of paintings on blue tarps showing stranded houses in the landscape after the effect of Hurricanes and heavy floods. The intention of the work is to comment on the material of the blue tarps itself and the relationship that exist after the catastrophes, a temporary solution and an architectural alternative that becomes part of the landscape.
