My latest installment on the subject of flags, continues to explore the current troubling national discourse that I began addressing in 2017, with my series, ‘Worry Flags.’ In these new works, hand-painted, collage-like compositions suggest a hyper-partisan landscape of only red and blue fragments of our stars and stripes. As one interacts with the canvas, reflections of light bring out white highlights amongst the red and blue – giving definition to our shared national symbol – and metaphorically staking out the possibility of an elusive middle ground.
