It’s the final Days to Bid on the 10th Anniversary 9/11 Memorial Auction AMERICAN FLAG (COURAGE), 2011 by Peter Tunney.
This original collage measures 62 x 110” and reflects the diversity and bravery of the American people. The mixed media collage is of acrylic paint and on hand-sewn sail canvas. The definition of courage is hand-painted between layers with the artist’s signature lower right carved in paint.
Peter Tunney brings art and life to everything and everyone he encounters. A gum wrapper, a hubcap, photographs of photographs, evidence of his actual footsteps, a leaf from Bhutan, a beautiful nude, one complete vintage record, one partial. These everyday items and more are added to his overflowing pockets and catalogued, each piece waiting for a chance to become a part of Tunney’s art. Like Michelangelo, who saw the art inside the stone, or Pollack who would not accept a mistake as art, Peter Tunney works painstakingly and meticulously to bring to life the art that resides in all things.
