Morgan Lehman Gallery
Jan. 9, 2023 - Feb. 8, 2020
Morgan Lehman is thrilled to present Stilleven, a group exhibition that explores the idea of still life and features the works of five artists working in an array of disciplines and conceptual modes.
One might define still life, (or “stilleven” in Dutch), as the artistic depiction of an arrangement of objects generally inanimate, commonplace, and personal in nature. Traditionally, these objects are rendered within a shallow spatial field that mimics the way we might encounter objects in our daily lives. Still life has ancient origins, developing into a highly refined art historical genre in the Netherlands by the 16th Century, and continues to be a format full of possibilities for artists working today.
