Eric Fishcl - Late America

This work by Eric Fishcl is a rather controversial one. Many believe that the old man keeling over next to the young boy holding the flag is supposed to symbolize his passing of responsibilities to a younger generation, as he is to old to carry on. Others claim that because he is white the painting is meant to say that white people don't know what to do. Regardless of what you think, it's a nicely coated painting with a sort of simplicity to it that makes it special. Very interesting in my opinion.
