FLAGUSA by Wheels is an excellent example of multi-layered intersectional art. The background fields of various colors are offset by white intersectional art components. The 50 stars are each unique and while it was not conceived this way, the overall effect is that there are 50 bullet holes shot from the backside of the flag. What does that mean to you? How does it relate to the current political situation of the United States?
It’s not Fourth of July or Memorial Day or even Flag Day so why this flag? A series seems to be developing based on icons… religious symbol, flag(s), what other icons can you think of?
While this flag has the right colors, it also seems to be missing something. What do you think is missing? Leave a comment below with your idea(s).
