I have had a recent exhibition with artist, Jung A. Woo, at Cara y Cabezas Contemporary,  I Am An American!

We are exploring the cacophonous nature of democracy and Jung A’s work  engages the sense of immigration/global migration in the American landscape.

Here are a couple of images of my piece,  Untitled (flag) .  It is made of thousands of  thorns from the honey locust tree

and is approximately 7′ x 12′.  While I was influenced by the contentious political environment during the 2012 election, others have referenced  painful

aspects of American history, and still other viewers have regarded the piece as a comment on the infusion of religion into political life.
