Nature Morte presented three contemporary artists who utilize the still life as a central part of their process. Sharon Core takes her inspiration from the traditional still life, creating uncanny facsimiles of hyperrealistic paintings. Miranda Lichtenstein frequently uses the still life format as a means to examine and deconstruct the photographic process. In the multi-disciplinary work of Corin Hewitt, the still life represents the end-product and the documentation of an experiment and performance. Each artist in Nature Morte honors and subverts the traditions of the still life genre while exploring how photography has influenced it.
