ManInFlag_40x50_Oil-cotton_1987

Man in Flag. 40″x50″. Oil on cotton. Exhibited in the Annual National Exhibition 1987. The ambiguous image of a man trying either to free himself from the flag wrapped around him, or to tear it apart, symbolizes both the struggle of Jamaican society with its national identity, and its self-destructive tendencies.
