This sculpture parodies Jamie’s sexual rebelliousness whilst at art school in the USA. Made up of 335 casts of the tip of his penis it is deliberately ambiguous, allowing you to draw your own conclusions. Jamie is clearly being whimsical, lampooning the male ego using the ubiquitous and powerful symbolism of the American flag. The star spangled banner is an icon depicted hundreds of times by hundreds of artists. This piece comments on the appropriation of symbols and on the artist himself, rather than on the USA, a country he loves and maintains a studio in.
