Description: 

When Lucas's marriage was shaken by a problem he attributed to an in-law, Lucas created Broken Home from a window panel with fragments of shattered glass.

When Lucas's marriage was shaken by a problem he attributed to an in-law, Lucas created Broken Home from a window panel with fragments of shattered glass. Into its rectangular form, Lucas incorporated several of his favorite devices: the autobiographical bicycle seat mask; a serpent (the intruding in-law); and a fan blade, quite literally the deus ex machina that will blow away the offending serpent.
