About the Work

This piece was about Ronald Reagan's overlordship of Central America, a world away from the pretty New England town where I happened to be living. I was walking down Main Street one fine Sunday when I noticed the shapes made by 'Old Glory' flying outside a church. Sometimes the breeze made an eagle's head out of the flag. On the opposite side of the street were several maple trees. The result was that my big bird overflew the maples of Massachusetts instead of the jungles of Central America.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
