Charles Hecht's America Hecht has created twelve sculptures, each of them representing an American flag. They were made from sheets of steel, all the same size of 13" by 24", and then painted them in the true colors red and blue. The "white" is pure steel, since the white symbolizes purity. The stars consist of marbles of red, white and blue, blue and white or solid white. Steel and glass are the materials favored by Hecht. The sculptures are hanging, with a distance of three to four inches off the wall. Nine flags are hanging as a square group, another three individually on the side walls. At first sight, the nine pieces in the group almost look like a Warhol-style series. The American flag is one of the best-known icons throughout the world. There are few symbols that involve as many feelings, both passionate and contradictory. This has become even more the case since September 11th, 2001. It seems that the American flag is always a statement. However, Charles Hecht stresses the fact that there is no political connotation implied in this work. "It's just art," he says, "The idea is more elementary." Hannah, the artist's nine-year-old granddaughter, is responsible for the idea. Hannah did not learn about the meaning of the components of the flag at school, so it was a study project for the two of them, which inspired Hecht: everybody knows the flag, but what is it about? She became the namesake for the series, originally titled, "Hannah's Flags. Hecht seems to say: get to know your origin. Additionally, Hecht strives to emphasize that in reality there is a multiplicity of ideas; there is one flag for all, but it means something different to everyone and is free for interpretation. Hecht has subtly transferred this into the way he manufactured his sculptures. Charles Hecht
