09 FLAG 2012

“Daily Flag 9” by The Krings Family at 4A Violet Ave. 30” x 38”. Felt cut outs and 2-dimensional fabric shapes hot glued and hand sewn onto synthetic fabric. SOLD $30 A traditional craft design provides the inspiration for this joyful flag. Nine discrete objects are depicted, seven of which one might associate with winter. The snowflakes, stars, decorated Christmas trees, snow covered trees, reindeer, snowman and shooting star all have an air of Winter Carnival about them and the use of vibrant colours on the edging adds a celebratory feel to the whole piece. The remaining two items featured, grapes (representing wine) and bread on either side of the number 9, bring us back to the purpose of this project, pushing the viewer to think again about both the basic necessities of life and value of sharing implicit in the practice of breaking bread.
