Being an artist is, in many ways, like living on an island. You find yourself isolated from the norms, the capitalist structure and idealized success supported by material aspiration. It is a unique existence in so many ways often characterized as being an outsider. The Packard/Lockheart family offers an extraordinary opportunity to look at the professional work of several family members working as professional artists. The works are related in the sense of familial relationship, yet still exemplify the true complexity of artistic pursuit by remaining entirely unique. Looking deeply into the practices of four artists seeing how they relate and how they differ creates a sounding board for collaboration and comparisons rarely presented by family.
