This artwork was exhibited in James King's solo exhibition 'Assembly Required', held in late 2020 at the SHAC (Robertson, NSW), in conjunction with Becker Minty.
Of the series, King said: "Painting images from the past and bringing to life new narratives, I seek to understand my own experience growing up in a fractured family dynamic. Keeping a family or a group of people together requires work but as I’ve discovered it’s an emotional cost that has proven difficult throughout my lifetime. Too often conflicting personalities have ruptured any hope of harmony and in our efforts to appease, there are consequences."
