Kevin Best – ‘Still Life’

Kevin Best’s Still Lifes –  contemporary photographic versions of the classic Dutch still life paintings using authentic antique props such as 300-year-old bronze candlesticks, antique silverware, German jugs or “Kraak” porcelain, to decode their complex symbolism and reinterpret them for the modern viewer.

“The Dutch were all about making their paintings look real. My work takes the reality of photography and makes it look like a painting so viewers get the same sense of awe… For centuries artists have used the still life to hone their creative and technical skills. Still life photography is challenging and intellectually stimulating”.
