Inspired by visitations, dreams, and ancestral angel protectors, Tiffany Simmons : M A T R I A R C H serves as a psychological deconstruction of the female archetype as a leader, mother, and predecessor. Looming figures invite into the sublime deep to reverence the dichotomy of the state of bearing, in it's duty of bliss and limitation. The ashen figures are rendered in a delicate and hasty paradox that etch a visually conspicuous sense of imperfection into the harmony of the psychic landscape. Each visage portrays a semblance of the seen and unseen, revealing the inner conflict of motherhood, the simultaneous strength and vulnerability, dominion, and restriction, all contextualized by the ancestral ties to the foremothers who laid the psychological landscape of the maternal paradigm.
