Description

In "Reds, Whites, and the Blues" DiSalvo commemorates his visit to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC. In this painting he fills his own silhouette with names of Vietcong who perished and includes the name of two of his family members whose deaths were related to their service in the war. This depiction offers a different historical perspective in both a literal and figurative sense.
