These pictures on the plates look so true that you want to eat them!
It's amazing how modern painting can be! At first, it may seem to the viewer that there is an appetizing slice of pizza on one plate, a beautiful donut on the second, and a third on the third ... Arnold Schwarzenegger? Well, it is necessary, how this artist has thought of!
Modern painting on plates
Her name is Jacqueline Poirier, and she paints contemporary paintings, mostly in the style of photorealism. Despite the fact that the direction of her painting is rather traditional, the canvas on which she works is completely unfamiliar to most viewers. And all because the girl prefers to paint not flax or cotton, but ceramic plates!
Poirier says that she draws from childhood, but she felt herself as a true artist only a few years ago when she discovered the love of painting on ceramics and porcelain in herself. Is there a better way to share your creativity with the public, except for how to put the painting on those items that everyone uses in their everyday life?
This is how the “plate art” (literally “plate art”) was born, which Jacqueline jokingly calls “plart”. Modern painting from Poirier knows no bounds: the girl paints porcelain and ceramic plates with any subjects from food to celebrity portraits. Sometimes her realistic paintings occupy the entire surface of the plate, and sometimes the artist plays with the shape of the vessel itself to create the effect of an optical illusion and present the flat image as three-dimensional.

Jacqueline Poirier is known for her “star” portraits, and even personally presented them to famous guests at the Toronto International Film Festival. And, of course, her realistic paintings on dishes can be seen in the five-star restaurant of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where the modern artist used to work as a waitress, and after her success with “plate art” she became an artist-decorator. Who would have thought that drawing on plates could be a real job!
But lately, the artist has increasingly been spoken about in the context of her “food” paintings - the food performed by Jacqueline looks very realistic and that is what is depicted on the plate and lulls the vigilance of the public altogether.
And the paintings of this artist, on the contrary, look like realistic modern paintings, although in reality they are made from food:See also: Masterpieces of painting in the style of hyperrealism
