I have always loved art, from the first time I held clay in my hand. As I've grow older, I've also started to appreciate seeing and displaying art that represents who I am. In many ways, I've found art that explores each part of my life except one; my family. I was adopted at a young age and am part of an amazing, multi-ethnic family. For the life of me, I can't seem to find artwork about this topic that isn't clearly geared for children. While some of the child-geared work is beautiful, I'm looking for art that is more mature.
Does anyone have any suggestions of artists who are exploring offbeat or non-traditional familyhood for an adult audience? — Caitlin
