Paulette Tavormina: Seizing Beauty

$65.00 Hardcover SEE Inside!

Published By:

Monacelli Pr, 04/26/2016

In her sumptuous still lifes replete with flora, food, and artifacts, photographer Paulette Tavormina creates intensely personal interpretations of timeless tableaux. With a painterly perspective reminiscent of Old Masters such as Francisco de Zurbarán, Adriaen Coorte, and Giovanna Garzoni, her meticulously orchestrated and lit photographs are boldly contemporary in their precision. Presents the full array of her seductive and opulent still life series, heirs to the legacy of a cherished art tradition now seen through the lens of photography. Essays by art and photography scholars Silvia Malaguzzi, Mark Alice Durant, and Anke Van Wagenberg-Ter Hoeven delve into the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century sources of Tavormina’s inspiration, her stance in art photography, and how the conventions of yesterday’s painting can transform to make visually stunning photographic art for today.
