Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Flags, like all abstract art are up for interpretation by the viewer. What do you see as you look at the Confederate flag - Hatred or History?

Saundra Johnson, I SEE so much in your CHANGE POV painting... I left Appalachian home age 13 before Rt66 to DC was finished where this flag came out of the Shenandoah Valley. My legacy all fought in Am Rev, Civil War, WWII... Yes I see the EYE colors and my white girl hazel eyes filled w/ angry & silent heavy metal toxicity fr the viscose that robbed me of fertility eXtreme lead posioning that I didn't learn about til after WTC911... I see the X... x out, denied, Xenophobe, eX eXclude, eXcommunicate, eXodus, eXit. Upload to the host group, Art CHANGES Lives. GJ glorijean

Wow. You and I have so much in common with this piece. I, too lived in Appalachia but eXperienced the brown - eyed version of this flag. I am so glad that it invoked thought. That is art with a purpose. Thank you for inviting me to join your group. I think that is a good idea for me. Peace and blessings.

I see this flag as a symbol of a political system that envisioned the enslavement of African people for eternity. Many fought tooth and nail to preserve that enslavement and those that do not acknowledge this fact, but merely see this as "history" are sadly mistaken if they think we, as Africans will ever forget or not protesting hatred and racism.
My point of view exactly. I tried with this piece to outline the absurdity of the "history" argument for those who wish to preserve such a hateful symbol. Thank you for your insight.
