Still life painting and photography is something that’s slowly crept back into my life as an interest. I remember being bored to death by still life in college, and hating having to sit through slide show after slide show of Dutch Masters’ work. It’s so funny how tastes can change, because now that’s all I want to look at. While I love a beautiful still life with wilting flowers and food, I’ve found myself drawn towards pieces with a more minimalist modern spin. These paintings by Canadian artist Christoper Stott look like photographs, but are actually paintings. Chris has twenty new paintings on display at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California, which will be up through the ned of June. These three pieces above and below (especially the typewriter) are my favorite, but you can view more of Chris’ work on his website right here. If you’re interested in seeing the show or purchasing a piece, you can contact the Elliott Fouts Gallery right here. Thanks to Michelle for the tip! xo, grace
