Red Flag is a pictorial representation of the contemporary Massachusetts landscape. The sculpture is made entirely from wood and litter I collected from wild spaces throughout the commonwealth.
The sculptures displays the devastating impact pollution and climate change has on the environment. The garbage speaks to the massive problem of pollution. The species of timber used in the work all have historical and cultural significance to the state. The wood itself comes from trees mortally damaged from sever weather systems.
