Maxwell Emcays presents a new body of work that shows identity through his “Flag Series”. The series motto is “celebrating sovereign individualism within the collective”.  The new collection juxtapositions portraits in relation to a flag reference as a means to highlight representation and identity through color and portraiture.  The goal of this exhibit is to encourage and provide opportunity to young talent while showcasing a new body of work that speaks to identity and representation.
