Triumph and Tragedy of a Family Unit
Although the details of the family story are personal, the story itself is universal. The highs and lows of family, trauma, response, feeling of defeat, and overcoming are part of humanity as a whole. – 2012
This painting and sculptural like piece, A Windowed Perspective is part of a body of work created in partnership with Alamance Alliance for Children and Families under the Behind the Seen Art exhibition.
With the Window:
“A community project, based out of Alamance County, North Carolina, using art as a medium to spread awareness and provide insight into the uniqueness of families with young children experiencing emotional and behavioral challenges.
The scope of the project brings four families and sixteen artists together to create unique interpretations of family dynamics and challenges using visual art as a medium. Each family will be paired with four unique, diverse artists to interact and build relationships with throughout the term of the project. Each artist will then create works depicting their own interpretation of the children and their families which will reflect the way in which they perceive the world.”
