Family Portrait

Family Portrait


Canvas (1.20/1.80 meter),(4 by 6 Feet)

Soete-Descamps Family


I asked all the members of the family to write me a letter, they all chose to write about eachother.

Reading the letters, I had a good idea of the different characters and the dynamics of the family as a group.

Each element in the painting has its own meaning as a symbol or allegory, specifically chosen to depict this unique family.
