‘In the Still’ reinvigorates and recalibrates the tradition of the still life, or nature morte. The exhibition features a diverse spread of works by twelve contemporary artists: Craig Waddell, Fraser Anderson, Dean Home, Leah Fraser, Heidi Yardley, Laura Jones, Kirra Jamison, Miranda Skoczek, Susan Baird, Kendal Murray, Dean Home, Claudia Damichi, Lynda Draper, Shona Wilson and John Baird. Drawing on a tradition ripe with symbolic currency, each artist interprets the conventional mode of the still life in creative and complex ways. From the abstract to the figurative, the works collectively cultivate a dialogue between the aesthetic and the conceptual, revealing the elasticity of the concept of the still life. The artists convey how the notion of life ‘in the still’ can be anything from a living moment, a revenant mnemonic trace or a distant dream.
