PITTSBURGH, PA (March 1, 2018) –  From April 17th through May 18th BoxHeart Gallery presents Tiffany Simmons: Matriarch on exhibit in our 2nd floor gallery. The reception with the artist will be held Saturday, April 21st from 5-8pm. It is free and open to the public.


Born and raised in Dallas, Tiffany Simmons' roots are deeply Texan. She studied in Utah Valley and graduated in Studio Art from Brigham Young University where nature began to shape much of how she relates to her work. Simmons and her husband recently returned from living in the Middle East and have landed in northern West Virginia where becoming a new mom and north eastern beauty have captured her spirit in a way she could never have foreseen.


Simmons loves that art can stir and elevate the soul. She also deeply respects the medium it becomes through which people connect and share insights and experiences. Her work is a form of personal meditation in which she is able to disassemble her personal reflection on the human experience. Simmons uses texture, organic materials, and abstraction as tools to remark on the human experience in its intrinsic ability to be simultaneously prosaic and magnificent, complex and simple, crude and sublime. She strives to honor the innate human goodness that resides within each individual as well as shed light on the divine source of this inherent nature.


Simmons feels most liberated in the art making process when replacing intention with intuition, exploring outside the boundaries of planning and precision, allowing the repercussions of each mark or addition to dictate the path the piece will take until it is finished. Ultimately, her hope is to incite the viewer to see the world around them in a unique way that insists upon a rediscovery of human worth and the divine nature of every soul.
