Stars + Bars
no country for beginners
(etchings and sculpture)

JOSI ETTER ©

A small portrait of America - a nation of paradox in times of change and soul searching.

Artwork from the perspective of a foreign insider. 

 

There are parallels between German history and the current  trajectory of American politics. This  work explores the strangeness and paradoxes in American culture and the thread that ties it to similar events  in human history.

The work visually exposes an eternal aesthetic truth that lies beneath people and places. The project ‘Stars and Bars - No Country for Beginners’ visually represents cultural experience,  the human condition and the difficulty to understand a country with intense complexity.
