"COLORS OF COURAGE" 82"h x 101"w (actual height on left side is 53"). The flag is an in process piece, uniquely created for Artprize and will be completed in early September. The flag is made of 1000's of tiny slivers of hand made, hand cut, colored glass...placed side by side. It takes months to create a glass painting. This one is especially large and complex because the objective is to capture the beauty AND realistic moment of our waving flag, while using a rigid and unforgiving medium of glass. I wanted to offer to ALL, an Iconic image that would resonate with ALL, be inclusive to ALL...for ALL the good that our flag represents. The American flag is THE most highly recognized symbol in the world. I wanted my artistic style and technique to pay homage to the meaning and inspiration it represents to me and hopefully to others.
