For the past ten years I have chronicled the evolution of my family as children were born and a foundation in marriage took shape. My artwork has reflected the development of this journey registering both the highs and lows through the years. My latest series Family Game Night takes a critical look at the break down of a family unit through the eyes of the children and their parents. I attempt to capture the inevitable pitfalls that divorce settles upon all involved using children's games. My work is not meant to be a commentary on the status of relationships in ruin, but instead focuses on the unintended effects. Thematically children's games present an outlet for the imagination and yet it seems unavoidable that the disintegration of the family should taint it as a possibility of escape. It has been my own experience that even when fully cognizant of the ill effects divorce can have on children and thus striving to shield them to limit the damage, the nature of the thing itself devastates. Family Game Night depicts the turbulence that ensues against the backdrop of innocence and hopes for a brighter tomorrow.
