With dramatic motion, stripes of the national colors blur into sweeping arcs, adding to the dynamism of this extraordinary composition. With energy and assurance, Rosenquist creates a balance of representation and abstraction to visualize a contemporary image of American patriotism, an identity that is in constant flux, pulsating with vitality.
