Story Behind The Art
Intelligence services are filled with citizens who do dangerous work out of love for their country. They're "true blue" patriots who do not seek riches or recognition. Others are not so selfless; they pretend to be patriotic, but aren't. A False Blue patriot is easy to recruit because he’s not concerned with loyalty. He can be bought and sold because he can't resist the allure of money. Fundamentally, "false blues" have rot at their core. Here, a false patriot strikes a dramatic pose but stays safely back from the edge, risking nothing. Meanwhile, the true patriots stay hidden below.
