I created this piece as I continue to try and come to grips with the fact that gun culture in the US is so pervasive. I think about the US Constitution and the fact that it has amendments — modifications — but it is seen as unpatriotic to suggest a modification to the Second Amendment. How can I pledge allegiance to something that is unwilling to be changed? How can I pledge to follow when pain is in the wake?

This piece is made from birch, plexiglass and 44 caliber bullets. Each piece of red, white and blue acrylic is precisely cut to form the shape. The bullets are slightly reflected in the dark blue and glossy acrylic. The finished piece is 23x17 and it is an edition of twelve with two artist’s proofs. This is four of twelve (signed and numbered on the verso).
