Abstract (English)

Documentation of a serial work of seven mixed media sculptural portraits executed in 1985. McAlear examines the artist's portrayal of the generational relationships in her own family, as well as the use of the "screen" and "room" for formal staging and establishment of a sense of place. Thus a critique of the social structures of house, home and family is arrived at by both artist and curator. Biographical notes.
