The genre still life—natura morta in Italian and stilleven in Dutch—more than ever brings together the art of painting and photography through composition and lighting. A still life image creates a special relationship between the artist and the viewer with the objects portrayed, objects that are immobile and seemingly lifeless, yet capable of transmitting meaning and evoking sensations. The sense of alienation from the context creates a direct involvement with the work, the result being that the distance between the work and the viewer is truly minimal.This aspect is much appreciated by collectors who purchase a work because they love it (and not necessarily as an investment)—because of the way it involves them.Looking back at the evolution of still life in photography, many identify Still life of a set table…

RUSSIAvladantonov.ruWhen did you start with photography?I began to be involved seriously with photography in the early 90s when the first advertising agencies and magazines appeared in Russia. While during that period I managed to shoot commercial photo sessions and did 2000 female portraits, it was my first still life photograph entitled Laced Egg in 1999 that provided the theme for my personal work in the still life genre with a note of Surrealism, and which I continue to work with.From commercial to artistic photography—what was the developmental process behind your Art Objects series?This project has been developed over time because I am mainly occupied with magazine work (GQ, Vogue, Glamour, L’Officiel, Esquire and others). However, each activity contributes to the other. Working on magazines I hone my equipment skills, while…

CHINAsaatchiart.com(#4 Ed. 1 of 5)When did you start taking pictures and why did you choose the still life genre?I started in 2005; in particular, the series with flowers and birds is from 2016. I also like to make portraits, but it is difficult to find models worth taking. Moreover, the still life genre allows me to make better use of my specialty in painting.What kind of painting are you referring to and which masters inspired you?I am strongly influenced by the great Dutch still life painters, such as Jan Van Eyck and Jan Davids De Heem. Painting allows a great depth-of-field and at the same time clarity of details in the foreground. And photography is often difficult.From the shooting to lighting and composition, how are these works created?Piece-by-piece like a…

USArogerricco.comYou are the co-founder and now “Partner Emeritus” of the celebrated Ricco Maresca Gallery, but which came first, artist or art dealer?I think there are two types of art dealers, those who wanted to be artists (and some still are) and those who wanted to be collectors. I had, and still have, interest in collecting, but it’s more a natural instinct and connection between my own life as an artist and the work that other artists are doing that inspires and interest me the most.Life in the gallery world, especially in New York City, is a wild ride and I have always enjoyed discovering and showing emerging talent in whatever the medium. However, in the background, I have continued to make and show my own work.Did your career as an…

GREAT BRITAINveronicabaileystudio.co.ukHow was the Colourfields series born and how was it that you found inspiration in John Keats’ poetry?Indirectly, Colourfields is a eulogy to my father. In 2013 he was unwell with endstage renal disease (kidney failure) and the Royal Free Hospital, in Hampstead, London was nearby the Keats House, a few roads away from 2 Willow Road which I visited frequently. Reading John Keats’ poetry was been as a process of coming to terms with an inevitable family bereavement. Specifically, I found inspiration in the poem “To Autumn” published in 1820, the beauty and decay of the seasons, the annual cycle of renewal, the awareness of the inevitability of death…this I found in the landscape.I applied this thinking to photographs of flora near my north London home in an…

FRANCEgilleslorin.comYou define yourself an “alchemist”. Why?I always say this with a wink. It was actually something someone said to me once and I think this is a great description for those like me who like to create an image from raw materials and precious metals through chemical reactions. It is simply fascinating and magical. There are two steps to my work: the photography and the printmaking—in essence capturing the image and materializing it on paper or other support. Photography and printing offer so many possibilities. With both of these steps there are a number of solutions to create a specific atmosphere and mood, so I like to keep the photography and the printmaking separate, although I do plan both ahead.Let’s start with photography, from the choice of subjects to composition…
