New Paintings. Martime Flags. Dimensional works.

2015. Now showing at Ashawagh Hall, East Hampton, NY.

My new paintings. Maritime flags rendered in maple, poplar and Flashe. 
22" square x 5" deep each panel. Playing with the negative and positive graphic elements of each flag in softened primaries.

Each flag has two meanings, recognized internationally: 
The NATO alphabet- "Alpha through through Zulu." 
If flown alone from a vessel, each flag has a specific phrase or meaning. 
(Hence the titles of each).

Clockwise form upper left:
"Stop Instantly, Lima"
"Yes, Charlie"
"Don't Pass Ahead, Romeo "
