Jasper Johns

famous painting Flag of Jasper Johns

The Cold War was still in motion when the Flag was painted. It was a time of the inquisition, witch hunts, blacklists, loyalty oaths, censorship, and espionage in the US, many artists had their careers destroyed due to suspected communist sentiment in their art. Jasper Johns says that the idea for the flag came to him in a dream, there is no ceremonial purpose, he aimed to just present it. The painting is of the then American Flag with 48 stars, made with shreds of newspaper dipped in encaustic, allowing some texts to show through the wax
the cooled wax evokes expressionistic brush strokes, highlighting John's interests in semiotics. It also gives the painting a third dimension as it juts outwards to the viewer. This painting visually explores an item that 'the mind already knows, he never implied any meaning on it, blurring the line between high art and everyday life.
