“I have worked into my hubcap part of a postcard of the small island in France where I grew up. At that time the forest came right up to the edge of the shore. Since then, construction has replaced part of the forest, and my little island has been invaded by tourism. The yellow and red bands symbolize how growth and development pollute our world and leave us with black clouds.”Sophie Sejourne
