American Mask


6'5" H x 10" W x 10" D
U.S. flags, plastic flag ornament, stand.


American Mask is a work suggesting that bigotry and racism are hiding behind our American flag. By using the shape of KKK hoods made from the American flags I point to our sad history of intolerance and violence and hope that the work acts to awaken citizens to the danger of confusing bigotry with patriotism.
