A dialogue between Old Master still lifes and the photographs of contemporary American artist Paulette Tavormina.
Art is a continuum: the past and present are timeless, woven together with gossamer threads. When captured in a photograph or a painting, a still life gives immortality to a single moment in all its beauty and fragility. So still lifes are perhaps the most timeless of pictures. This show featuring contemporary photography alongside a selection of the gallery’s quintessential Old Master paintings is the culmination of shared passion and immense dedication to life itself. Still lifes are perhaps the most timeless of pictures - this exhibition is dedicated to still lifes, consisting of selected Old Master paintings alongside the photographs of contemporary American artist Paulette Tavormina. On show at Colnaghi in Madrid 12 June to 28 September 2018.
