Family Portrait is a representation of how an immediate family deals with the loss of a matriarchal figure.  Based on interviews with family members, each component is representative of an individual person (brother, sister, father, husband, son, daughter, niece/nephew) impacted by the same loss. Constructed of stiffened Kleenex, each piece is marked, discolored, torn and stitched in correlation with the answers given.
