It's Still Life: Chapter 2


Welcome to the 5th edition of The Pulse -- The State of the Art -- a survey in words and pictures of the online artist community. The Pulse is a collaborative project that aims to introduce you to new artists, help you get to know familiar faces even more, and allow you access into the creative hearts and minds of a very talented crew of individuals. More than 130 artists have answered a series of questions which make up The Pulse. Their responses will be presented in a series of online posts which will run every Sunday.

Style File, Techniques & Tools, and Master Class were the first three projects posted and links to all these posts can be found on the sidebar of my blog. The fourth project, It's Still Life, continues now...


Participants were asked to photograph a still life that you create using an array of objects.

"I took this shot using the app Hipstamatic (Jimmy lens, KodotXGrizzeld film, flash off). I cheated a little by using Aperture to tweak it a bit."

Dorothy Simpson Krause
"Each year I make a piece for a benefit called Alters + Icons that is essentially a still life/box. This one is called "Oz"."

Lani Gerity
"Here's a puppet, stone egg, and fossil. A little dark and a little Pollyanna (lol)."

Some varied and wonderful still life compositions in "It's Still Life" Chapters 1 & 2! I used to create an enormous still life (comprised of all manner of flea market and thrift store finds),in the middle of my classroom for my beginning art students to draw. To my thinking it's as interesting to see how a still life is arranged (which objects are emphasized, and which others are not), as are the objects chosen to be combined.

Seth,
I just "discovered" you when I bought your book 'The Pulse of Mixed Media'. It is FANTASTIC and I ask that you look at my website. I inscribe diary-like writings into my mixed media sculptures, which I call Inscriptive Manifestations. I have a 3-month solo exhibition in South Florida right now featuring 24 works. Think of me to include in your next book. You can't read all the writings on website, so if you're interested, contact me. www.deborahgregg.com and www.facebook/deborahgreggartist.com
