"This pillar-like composition comes from my ruminations on motherhood. Mothers are one of the metaphorical pillars supporting the home. The Old-Fashioned Way, alludes to feminism still in transition. Despite feminist gains, today’s working mothers carry the baggage of traditional gender roles. Even enlightened couples struggle with the allocation of domestic responsibilities, and mothers still tend to assume too much actual and psychic responsibility for the family’s wellbeing."
