Approaching Still Life PV video

Leyden Gallery is delighted to present a two-person exhibition focused solely on the genre of Still Life painting.

In looking at this subject through the lens of both classic and contemporary practice these artists have produced a new body of work for this exhibition that is Janus-faced - that is both, nodding to the past, whilst also subverting its classical boundaries of illusionistic detailed realism and hidden symbols. Through two distinct painting practices the same art historical subject of Still Life is revitalized for a contemporary audience.
