Artist Statement:

“Beyond the Plate” is a celebration of the many prominent cuisines and food practices found in Brampton, such as Filipino, Portuguese, and Bengali to name a few. This series explores the histories tied to each of the cuisines and asks the viewer to reflect on the way they connect to food. Whether it is purely through taste or sustenance, the food on one’s plate can be a catalyst that holds onto much more.
