Family Room; Lineage

Chris LaPorte's avatar Chris LaPorte

Family Room; Lineage is about time and line. I use line as a metaphor for how we are connected and how we may also be separated. The family in the central panel are my ancestors, my grandfather and his brother, sister, and parents. This work is in many ways a memorial, a place to contemplate death--a difficult and often painful subject.
