This Flag Won't Burn (Bronze)
Ab is extremely proud of his first bronze flag. This remarkable wall hanging was unveiled at the 2011 Folk Fest in Atlanta. The original was constructed of wood from a variety of sources, including a mule hitch with iron rings. You'll also see a well used paintbrush as well as salvaged parts from antique chairs.
Cast at American Bronze Foundry here in Sanford, this piece weighs nearly 200 pounds and is assembled from 16 separate pieces.

He has appeared in exhibits alongside the work of Peter Max, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.
Ab's love for the American flag originated with his father's military funeral and the flag draping the coffin.

Ab is one of our 'green' artists using reclaimed, reconstructed wood and found objects. All these influences make his art highly collectable.
