notes : Another in the artist's on-going exploration of the Union flag, its history and development, making it historical contemporary Pop Art.
comment : “This first Union flag appeared in 1606, and it remained a ‘glass union’' up to the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745. As a kid, I used to pass a union building on my way to school, and until I knew better, I read the sign as ‘onion’; a bit of a word-play on ‘Glass Onion’ and ‘union’.”
