"Old Glory" is a sculptural piece made out of vintage steel and cloth. This old blue steel has been knocked around until it appears ruined and damaged, but is still as strong as ever. I couldn’t even bang out some of the dents with a sledgehammer. It was then I decided to use it for this piece. I for one am sick and tired of all the crazy, narcissistic ’Reality TV’ drama that has torn our country apart. I wanted to do a piece to show that even though we take a pounding, regardless of our stance or differences, I still believe that we are Americans, our country is strong, and freedom, equality and justice FOR ALL will prevail.
OLD GLORY is comprised of metal, cloth, and paint.
