I have added this new image to my on going Still Life VI collection:
These are not paintings, they are digital images from photographs.
I feel obliged to explain verbally these images: The original still life photograph is lifted, raised to another level, to another interpretation, a new reality. A curator placed this final interpretation in the realm of Magic Realism, a term which is commonly applied to literature, specifically Latin American fiction.And thus attempting to bridge the gap between traditional photography and traditional painting (the repetition of ‘traditional’ is intended)
Well worth the 90 minutes: this BBC documentary on the lesser art of Still Life: https://vimeo.com/84883341
