Mike Cloud is known for his hybrid artworks made of diverse materials: fabric and clothes sewn into quilts, cut-up photography books, and plastic, alongside conventional art materials: stretchers, canvas, paper, and oil paint. The resulting works are unwieldy constructions in complex shapes, featuring both text and symbolic and historical references, including the Star of David and the Confederate flag.
