As I listen to the news while in my studio, I often find myself responding viscerally and through my art to the political landscape of the day. Since the 2016 election, the news has been dominated for by an unorthodox administration that I see as undermining our democracy, national unity and the values we stand for as Americans. Using an iconic national symbol, The Unraveling is the third in a series of flags that I have created over the last 10 years. Set against the backdrop of the constitution, I will continue to unravel this piece as long as I continue to see our civil and political rights eroding under the current administration.
