TRANSCENDING THE TABLETOP
Contemporary Practices in Still Life
“Still Life painting is often seen as a genre to the museum and gallery visitor for quiet and static contemplation. Painters know still life painting to be an incredibly engaging activity, one which allows total control of the choice of figure and ground relationship, the interplay between the perceived and the invented, with the ability to alter the motif during the process. While the final piece may have an intended impact and pacing to the read, the approach is active and deliberate.” – Nathan Foxton
This invitational exhibition was co-organized by Julie Anderson and Nathan Foxton. It opened at The Underground Gallery in the Harrison Center for the Arts in September/October. In November, it arrives in Dayton, Ohio, where it will be on display at Dutoit Gallery (dutoitgallery.com) located in the Front Street Warehouse, and then in December at Fifth Street Gallery, Stivers School for the Arts.
