Bleeding, Red, White and Blue

Bleeding Red, White and Blue

Title: Bleeding Red, White, and Blue
Artist: Doug D’Elia
Medium: The undergarment is a tank top with an America flag logo. I covered the tank top with a used a fatigue jacket that I painted with white paint. A hole was punched through the garment to resemble a bullet hole, and red, white, and blue paint was dripped from the bullet hole.
Description: “Bleeding Red, White, and Blue” was inspired by my experiences as a medic, and perceptions of combat wounds. The oft used expression is used to denote patriotism, but the reality of war is that each soldier regardless of uniform bleeds the same color.
