We Are Family

We Are Family
This journal spread took a long time to complete as it is complex in technique use.  I used packing tape transfers, stenciling, adhered tea bags, washes, collaged, and splattered painted.  The figures were found in fashion magazines and then altered.  Each has a new head on the found bodies.  All found bodies have been painted with Liquitex paint markers.

The theme of We Are Family is that there are all sorts of different types of family configurations.  No one configuration is better than another although there are some groups of people in the world who think differently.  Not in my head though.  I say, "Live and let live."  If you are not hurting one another then so be it.
