Steve Hanks - Holding the Family Together
Most people will look at Holding the Family Together and see it as a reminder of a happy family vacation and that’s great. For me it is about the man in the painting more than anything else. It is about the man’s position in society these days and how the pendulum has swung the other way and put men in this position—trying to keep the family together while they’re all going in different directions. Dad is almost down on his knees trying to hold this family together and no one really sees him. There’s also something in this painting about the separation of the sexes during the 1960s, when I came of age, with the women’s movement. I think the ground was shifting for all of us.
