    Oh, this is one very articulate work. I like Jasper Johns' usage of the American flag to express himself but this one is unique and yet visceral to me. I'd always thought my country has been fragmented, tribal, regionalistic and periodically warring, and yet we never cease to try to make one nation whole.
    This work said that to me in a second.
