Inheritance, Acylic on canvas painting by Kevin Grass, 91" x 81," 2012. In a private collection.

see full description & specifications

Inheritance depicts the difficulty faced by people in alcoholic families as they try to break the tradition of substance abuse. This painting was inspired by Kevin Grass's own family history. The figure in the bottom loculi is a self-portrait of the artist, who is clutching an art book to show that he has embraced art instead of alcoholism.

Inheritance

Realism artist Kevin Grass rejects his family's inheritance of alcoholism in this powerful print. Instead, he clutches an art book to show where his priorities lie.

see full description & specifications

The Inheritance image is to be read from top to bottom, like the loculi in the catacombs of Rome. The skeleton at the top represents the great-grandfather, the next figure down the grandfather, then the father, and the bottom figure is Kevin Grass, the artist himself.

Beer bottles are being handed down to show that the inheritance of alcoholism is something that is passed from generation to generation but Kevin is raising his hand, saying "stop!" Instead, he tightly holds a Northern Renaissance book to show that he has given his passion to art, and that alcoholism holds no sway over him. The cycle ends with him and art takes the place that beer held in the lives of the generations before him.

For anyone battling alcoholism, this print can serve as a powerful reminder of what is at stake if you do not persevere. It is also a scene of hope, because if someone finds something that is more compelling than alcohol in his or her life, like Kevin has with his art, then that can be the resolution to this significant problem.
