Traditionally, still lifes have been used to convey status or symbolic and allegorical messages, to display curiosities, and to provide a view of everyday objects. Modern still lifes have evolved from pure representation to an exploration of composition, color, line and form. This show explores a variety of still lifes in both traditional and modern styles.
This exhibit has been curated by Jennifer Farris and Rab Terry of STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco. Jennifer and Rab’s Nob Hill gallery showcases the work of Bay Area artists in fine art, crafts and home furnishings. STILL LIFES features 42 artists, working in painting, pastel, photography, textile, ceramics, metals and mixed-media.
