Symbolism distinguishes this image. The artist, David Bridburg, evokes a statement about incarceration in America. Maps of the USA generally are not used in dynamic fine art. The American flag overlay creates an enigma.
Maps of the United States of America have an impact globally. As if carved out of a fine wood, the map is held in a high esteem. Do not let anyone tell you differently. The US Constitution, the abundance, have peoples around the world yearning to live in the US, warts and all.
The red, white and blue against the white landscape of the portrait shaped image signify pride in our country. The artist leaves the viewers an elegant aesthetic. The full intent is to create a paradox.
