As guest blogger last December, I wrote about my project The Unraveling:
"Sometimes what is happening on the larger political context spills just a bit too much into my consciousness and gets released in my art. A new work of mine in this vein, The Unraveling, is a knit American flag that I am in the process of unraveling over time, reflecting my views on the current administration." As the flag unravels, it reveals the U.S. Constitution.
Now over 16 months into this administration, the Constitution behind the knit cotton flag is gradually becoming more visible. This work is on display at the New Bedford Art Museum now through September 20. It will then travel to a special four-person show titled Crossing Boundaries: Material as Message at Rockland Center for the Arts in West Nyack, from October 7 - November 25, 2018.
