In Thy Name

Woodblock, silkscreen, rope     48 x 48 in     2012

I made this hybrid American flag/swastika to talk about the possible direction and future of our country. The American flag has been a symbol of liberty, justice and pride for centuries, but for some people, like myself, the flag has lost its honor. As a child I was a firm believer in what our flag stood for, but as I grow and witness what extremists in power do in its name, I am saddened. I believe we need to remember what we stand for, and not allow our symbol of justice and liberty to become full of fear and hate.
