Portrait of Self: America

This piece is a contemplation on the increasing polarization of society, and its affect on our country. Reflected in the piece, literally, is the place of the individual in this divide.

The work was created using stained glass, mirrors, copper foil, wire, and reclaimed barbed wire. The piece is finished using extinct American chestnut boards milled by the artist from reclaimed barn wood.
