In the artist’s desire to document the meals made by her mother, each day’s lunch or dinner is captured. This work aims to pay tribute to the artist’s mother, and to all mothers, for the love she has poured forth through the preparation of her meals for the family.
This work also aims to encourage the audience to respond with a favourite dish that their mum has made, via an interactive poll: https://padlet.com/mondaymuseumwordpress/Bookmarks.
