A brief pause from the relentless pace of our modern world. This month we turn our attention to one of the oldest genres of western art – still life.
Rooted in a tradition of table top fruit and flowers, but expanding out into street scenes, landscapes and motionless bodies – show us still life in its broadest sense. Abandoned buildings, organised objects, empty terrain, frozen poses. We’re looking for attention to lighting, composition, texture and colour, but the genre is up to you – studio, street, portrait, travel, conceptual, architectural…
Let’s slow down and reflect. In still life, there is no end to our looking.
