Family Tree 

The idea of family has undergone considerable change in the last few decades. 


I loved looking at Family Tree diagrams as a child but in time I realized that in addition to our genetic families there are also families that we choose, particularly if we are misfits, for whatever reason. 


For me, a man who loves men, finding an echo of my desires is an important part of knowing that I exist within a community, a community that reaches back centuries. A few are known by name but most not. 


This sculptures honours those who are family by choice, by identification.
