Artist’s Photorealistic Paintings Create Delectable Illusions on Dinner Plates

Artist Jacqueline Poirier is ready and willing to cook up and serve some appetizing artwork. Using plain, white dinner plates as her canvas, she paints hyperrealistic food portraits that display an impressive use of detail, light, and shadow. While Poirier does paint other subjects, she has to admit that these culinary creations are the apple of her eye. “I think they are my favorites because they seem to be the most realistic,” she tells Instagram Blog. “They appeal to the masses (vegetarians included!) and act as great conversation pieces around the table.” Based on the amount of designs the artist has produced, it’s safe to say that she’s been the source of many mealtime conversations. As of right now, she’s painted over 1,500 plates.

To give these works of art a deserving home in Toronto, The Ritz-Carlton has invited Poirier to become their resident artist. This means that her hand-painted pieces are showcased throughout TOCA, the hotel’s signature restaurant.
