still life

September 19, 2018

I stumbled upon the photographs of Paulette Tavormina today, and I was captivated by the moody decadence of her work. Her images are inspired by seventeenth century Old Master still lives. The peonies and pomegranates are terribly beautiful, as is this scene of shellfish and lemons. Tavormina’s botanical series is stunning –– I’d like six of them, framed in something grand and gilded.
