Danielle Irwin, Student Work

"As a child, my mom and I used to always paint on our plates. This quirky tradition was always very special to me and so it is the basis for my idea. On the plates, I painted objects that represent equally happy and special memories. These memories, in my mind and in this piece, stand above those within this time that are a bit painful. I created this piece by scanning a part of my journal that wrestles with the memories of the latter category, and having the text printed on fabric, which now functions as the table cloth. I chose to display the cloth and plates on a table to communicate the concept of dinner time, a traditional basis for memories in most families' lives." - Danielle Irwin
