Vox Populi by Tennessee Loveless (American Flag Series) Original and Limited Edition Art
On President’s Day 2017, the partnership of artist Tennessee Loveless and his representing agency Combemale Creative, through ArtInsights Gallery of Film and Contemporary Art announced a new collection of art called “Vox Populi“. They are premiering the first piece, “PoMo Patriots”, which is the start of a larger examination of how the voting population, though deeply divided, must come together. A nation that chooses understanding, critical thinking, and lessons from history, can change their perspective to move beyond, and rise above those in power who seek to mine those divisions for their own greed and personal gain.
In the first image, Loveless chose quotes from a variety of politicians, activists, and philosophers, who come from very different perspectives and represent the spectrum of political thought. These quotes speak of freedom, patriotism, and the importance of standing up for justice when necessary. From George Washington to Harvey Milk, Eleanor Roosevelt and Bayard Rustin, to Lincoln, Tennessee creates an inspiring, moving statement about resistance. Written into the design of the American flag, the words are presented upside-down, requiring those who examine it to shift their perspective in order to read it.
“PoMo Patriots” is the first of an American Flag series called “Vox Populi”, another element of which will include fifteen pieces set to articulate important voices, perspectives, and events that make up what it means to be American. They will make announcements as the art is released for viewing and sale. While this first original is sold, there are limited editions available in two versions. There is a smaller image sized at 15 x 24 inches in a signed and numbered edition of 500 for $50, and a deluxe version sized at 21 x 32 inches, signed and numbered in an edition of 10 for $795.
