Still Life

Thames & Hudson

Unit price per

A rich survey of the work of more than forty still-life artists, which presents the genre in a uniquely Australian light.

"A collection of objects, no matter how mundane, tells a story. They are like a little world; you can get lost in them."

John Bokor

 

Still Life explores the diverse practices of more than forty contemporary Australian artists and documents a repertoire of styles, subjects, visions and philosophies. Alongside flowers and food – mainstays of the genre – the works within these pages also incorporate objects such as books and beer cans, birds and balloons, adding energy and intrigue to both the composition and the story revealed. This book captures the inanimate beauty of the everyday in a distinctly Australian context, and offers a meditation on human experience and the brevity of life.
