THE TSUNAMI PROJECT consisted of a dozen sculptures carved in response to the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004.  Images of those giant ocean waves and their horrifying effects have altered how we look at the fragile balance between harmony in nature and total chaos. The paradox of the tsunami, as an instrument of destruction and a form of natural beauty, challenged Kavanagh to create sculpture reconciling water’s capacity for devastation with its inherent fluid grace.
