Gifts of Art presents Timeless Instants: Still Life Photographs
Originally from Kansas City, Tina West discovered photography while studying sculpture. She sees her photographs more as paintings, and her still lifes have powerful cast shadows and frequent light play. Influenced by Gerhardt Richter and surrealism, West’s images communicate a sense of being, connecting not only the objects in the photographs, but also the viewer and the photograph. She draws inspiration from the objects in her vast collection of unique treasures, and she speaks to their unreserved timelessness with maturity and wonder. All of the images in this exhibit were created using instant film in a 4x5 view camera.
