Marissa Solini says,” “Patterns” is an exploration of the historical and visual elements of an apron. Each apron featured carries with it the story of its owner. Aprons bring about memories of the homemade and handmade. When researching gender roles, I found the apron to be an interesting artifact from another time. During my childhood, I wore aprons for baking Christmas cookies and making crafts. Today, I wear aprons for another purpose: painting. During the process, I recognized the simplicity and complexity of these aprons, and how they start to mirror patterns in our own lives.”
