Abstract (English)

"Heather Passmore, often chooses discarded and historically valued materials for her artwork. From outdated milk, to a used mattress, to hand written sheet music, her unconventional materials bring another dimension to her pieces. She continues this technique in her exhibition Roman Charity, that explores the societal discomfort surrounding breastfeeding. For the pieces in this collection, she uses her own paint which she makes from cow’s milk and expired breast milk, The series includes three large self (effaced) portraits on fabric depicting the last time Passmore nursed her daughter, and images of mothers covering their faces instead of their breasts while breastfeeding. The images are based on photographs that circulated on social media in protest to admonishment that mothers should cover up while nursing in public." -- Publisher's website.
