Kiernan Gallery Photo Exhibition “Still Life”
Theme: Still Life: The Art of Arrangement
From Dutch masters’ paintings to contemporary photography, the still life has played an important role in art history. This genre grants the artist complete control over their subjects, allowing unparalleled ability to select details and manipulate the scene.
Still lifes often employ symbolism, where the objects assume their own character and identity. An entire story can be told with the arrangement of a few items; toys, dolls, and household goods become surrogates, and natural life is given a persona. For Still Life: The Art of Arrangement, The Kiernan Gallery seeks evocative and symbolic still life images.
