About the Exhibition:

A still life may be static, but since the genre’s height in flowers, citrus, globes and skulls on Dutch Golden Age tables, we find that simple and stationary can breed magic: the ability to transform the everyday into something artistic, harmonious, composed and worth sitting with. Artists turn to still lifes when learning to sketch, experimenting with new techniques, or flexing their skills. The still life is the ultimate moment of meditation, honing an artist’s craft and a collector’s appreciation by breathing life and light into the everyday object.

Still: A Survey of Contemporary Still Life Paintings, presented by Sugarlift and High Line Nine, examines contemporary artists from a variety of schools and mediums working in the still life genre. The online preview and curator tour opens on Thursday, September 3rd at 6:00-7:00PM. The exhibition will open in-person at 507 W 27th Street on Thursday, September 10th with social distancing protocols.

Still is curated by Sotheby’s Old Master Paintings expert Calvine Harvey and contemporary artist Dina Brodsky.
