“The rainbow flag is also known as the pride flag and the peace flag. From the rainbow covenant of the bible to many of the pre-Columbian cultures to the peace movement of the 1960’s, the image has been a unifying icon. I decided why not take something so recognizable and meaningful to so many people, and develop it and deconstruct it and bring it back again through my art. Whether it be about our differences regarding gender equality, class struggle, racial prejudice or religious intolerance, perhaps something beautiful, harmonious and sacred can make a promise of unity of diversity through the power of color and light.”
-M. Verrillo
