A native of England, Stockdale moved to Long Island, New York as a teenager and says she was immediately struck by how eager her new friends were to share their own diverse immigrant histories.
“I personally feel that America is a multicolored, multifaceted nation of extremely diverse interests, views and substance and that is what makes it great,” Stockdale said. “Our flag and our prophetic motto remind us that we can be very different and yet still come together in harmony. To honor that diversity inclusively I began making these flags. This is not a statement of an Empirical United States abroad but rather a welcome to really look at the current makeup of our country and to celebrate who we are now, and here at home in the USA.”
Stockdale’s project is a series of American flags made by hand from fabrics evocative of the different cultures that make up the U.S. Examples of her flags include the Scottish American made from tartan wools, Japanese American made from origamipapers, and Chinese American made from Chinese silks and talismans.
Reception: March 15, 2019 from 5:30 - 8pm
