In a time of uncertainty, where women, the LGBTQ community and civil liberties are being questioned, artist Paul Jacobsen has created a series of works to express his emotional response to these issues. Titled “Mourning Flags,” Jacobsen used charcoal to draw abstract representations of flags in various positions to address the current state of events. The pieces encourage onlookers to stop, reflect, or in Jacobsen’s case, mourn.
