Still life paintings and photography usually focus on small arrangements of objects on a table or plate, organized deliberately and with artistic intention. Still Life Expanded seeks to broaden this traditional view of “Still Life” to include not only singular objects, but also tableaus that are found or discovered by accident, randomly – the wabi sabi of wilting flowers ready to be tossed, a cluttered closet, graffiti, a store window, a serendipitous streetscape with no obvious design. All describe a slice of life, but in a larger context than the traditional still life genre.
