This series of illustrations tells my story. The title ‘Family life’ does not refer to the cozy family life, but instead, to the underlying sentiments and relationships. What happens in a family? How do we interact? What do we tell each other and, more importantly, what don’t we? These are questions that come to mind when I look at my own family, but also the families of others.
Inspired by photographs from my family albums, I made these illustrations. The deer, the monkey and the masks, they invoke questions and they show that not everything is what it seems. But what it is then? That’s for you to decide.
