Riot Around the Flag

Onzie Norman's avatar Onzie Norman

Riot Around the Flag is constructed with 3 large uniquely shaped framed wood panels created to interlock with the panels spread 2 to 6 inches apart for best visual view, I primarily used layers of acrylic paint, sand and resin to achieve the finished product, this piece is completed with poured resin giving a high gloss appearance. The story behind this painting is one of American history, " Riot Around the Flag " is my abstract interpretation of the American flag with red white and blue being the dominate colors and the masses of white is actually the flag blowing in the wind, since 1777 the flag design has been modified 26 times, and the meaning of the symbols and colors has lead to plenty of conspiracy theories. Under this flag a lot trials and tribulations have occurred in this nation such as slavery, wars and unjust laws which the people in this country still fight over. As the freedom, unity struggle continues in this land there always will be a riot around the flag.
