Mending Our Country
On January 6, 2021, as rioters stormed the Capitol, any hope that I had in the future of this country was lost. In response, I started making a tattered patchwork flag with seams exposed and frayed.
Later that month, when new leaders peacefully took the oath of office and immediately got to work, I allowed myself just a glimmer of hope that maybe there is a chance our country can survive the intensity of this last year. So I started adding soft sculpture figures to stitch the flag back together and help give each other a hand. The struggle is not over, but maybe we can start working together again toward a better future.
