Collaboration with my son Luca Hill:
Concept, Design & Direction - Sol Hill
Sewing with creative input - Luca Hill
This work is a direct reference to Jasper Johns’ Three Flags. Like Johns’ famous work, this piece seeks to transform the famous political emblem but unlike Johns the intention is to infuse a warning of political peril into the piece rather than remove it into the space of formalized design. Here the flags have been quite literally taken apart and re-sewn, to create visual disunity reflecting the contemporary political situation. But there is optimism intended in this flag as this piece is literally re-stitched together with the fragmented pieces of 3 flags into a new collective whole, showing us that by working together we can restore the pieces of the nation.
