Victoria Roberts: Stars and Stripes Forever

Victoria Roberts: Stars and Stripes Forever

Show dates April 21 - May 31, 2018, Tucson Gallery. Artist Statement: "I have always loved the imagery of the American Flag, so creating them, as part of my artistic expression was inevitable. It started with my wanting to shed light on monetary corruption, so I made flags with advertising materials, yardsticks and bottle caps, showing the logos of different companies on each flag. By the 4th piece I started adding other elements, I embedded 3 dimensional stars into that flag as if they were falling off, then the idea of adding a written phrase came to me. Every flag I make will express a different concept or observation, and I'm excited to be asked to do this show Stars and Stripes Forever with my flags as the focus. Art is a journey, it’s an ever-evolving process, I never know where it will take me next." -Victoria Roberts
