Text Here Debra Pearlman Milk Quilt, 2004 Iris print on organza silk


“Milk Quilt” explores themes of family, motherhood, and children. Using digital prints on silk, she presents hundreds of breast images reaching far into the air, a testament to the very real bodies of women feeding the world. Lifted up high into the space, the quilt becomes monumental, a potent image of the private and intimately human space of motherhood in our technological medical world. The invisible yet essential labor of breast-feeding is a means of production that sources back to the body itself. Reproduction, repetition, the physicality of process and materials, and the nature of the photographic image are essential elements of Pearlman’s work.
