Howdy Neighbor

Howdy Neighbor; Freehand machine embroidery, appliqué & reverse appliqué on repurposed fabric, grommets, and flag poles mounted at porch height; Six 3’x2′ flags suspended at 8′ on the wall; 2023

These porch flags play with the metaphor of neighborhood, on the local and global level. Some act as an invitation for care and collaboration, some an indictment of selfishness and isolation. Together they are an expectation of a collective drive for an equitable global neighborhood.
