The Matriarchs,    2016 - 2017    Archival Pigment Prints + Single Channel Video with custom designed textile pattern.   In  The Matriarchs,  I collaborate with all the women in my family to produce a series of still-life photographs, portraits, and cinematic imagery. References to mythical protagonists such as saints, deities, and other famous icons are interjected throughout. The images emphasize physical gestures of connectivity, hierarchy, balance, and tension--all allusions to the dynamics that exist between women in family units. Set in the subtropics, the work conflates female identity amidst a disappearing South Floridian territory. Ultimately this series is about contemplating loss while maintaining that the feminine presence is tender, generative, and powerful.
