Brass’ series is inspired by the dishes from her childhood, and she approaches each image as we’d visualise them on our grandmother’s tables, or on some Italian restaurant in a tourist trap area. Awash in retro colours and sitting atop gaudy-patterned tablecloths, Brass focuses on the food itself, which is arranged simply and without pretension.
“When I started the project, the idea was just about fake or funny food – things that I always found entertaining or weird,” says Brass about the project. “But the longer it took, I realised that most of the things I portrayed are already or extinct or will soon be, but also the absurdity of these food trends. It’s interesting how things that were totally normal to you as a kid become surreal because society changes.”
