Reconstructing Lineage | 20200220_101551-1.jpg
20"x16", 2020, $1375. Framed I created Reconstructing Lineage to portray the beauty of multicultural backgrounds. With the popularity of the show Finding Your Roots" and the website ancestry.com, many of us are looking more closely into family history. This mixed media painting celebrates the blending of family lines. Flipping through family photo albums I recognize myself in family members from many generations removed. We want to know who were our people, where were they from, what did they look like?
