When most people think of still life paintings, images of fruit, vegetables and other objects appear in their minds. This historical view of the inanimate objects may cause a few yawns.
The works featured in the 9 Lives exhibit are anything but mundane. Each artist looks at the objects they paint with a contemporary eye. The not so still life images are rendered in a variety of styles and become works that question their connection to this traditional category of art. Actual objects that might be used as inspiration are integrated into the actual work.
The paintings pulsate with energy and intrigue.
