Catalogue Note

FAILE, a collective of artist duo Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, uses appropriated images and symbols to initiative dialogue about contemporary ideologies. “Star Spangled Shadows" is indicative of the artists' graphic style but with a unique medium. Combining the pregnant symbolism of the American Flag and a motif from Native American pottery, this piece engages with a discussion on the boundaries of American identity.
