08 Flag 2013


08

Daily Flag 8 on Sunday December 8 at 74 Leuty by Geoff, Sharon & Family. 30”x50” Acrylic paint on canvas. SOLD $110 Flag 8 is a figure eight-shaped warning on rising food prices with a nod to climate change, and is derived from the international semaphore for a severe hurricane. Seven year old Sam, who helped with the painting, also thinks it looks like a pair of “Minecraft Santas”. Anyone who has reeled at spiralling prices for food staples lately knows the difficulty of feeding families on a budget in Toronto. This holiday season, Flag 8 urges everyone to consider that for a fifth year in a row, Torontonians paid over a million visits to food banks just to keep body and soul together — a storm that shows no sign of weakening any time soon.
