|I love this photograph by Paulette Tavormina|
from the press release:
Tavormina's dramatic images reflect the sumptuous detail of 17th century Old Master paintings. Using a contemporary medium and a modern approach, her vibrant photographs of food and flora are reminiscent of Dutch, Spanish, and Italian still-lifes of the Golden Age.
“I have long been fascinated by the magic of everyday objects, the majesty and delicacy of nature, and the world of culinary delight,” said Tavormina.
“I have blended decades of photography and food styling with a love of 17th century Old Master paintings to create these still-life photographs.
"My greatest influences have been Francisco de Zurbaran, Adriaen Coorte and Giovanna Garzoni, in particular Zurbaran’s mysterious use of dramatic light, Coorte’s unique placement of treasured objects and Garzoni’s masterful composition and color palette. The works of these artists remind us of the irretrievable passing of time – tempus fugit.”
Tavormina’s photographs are in museum, corporate and private collections and have been exhibited all over the world, including shows in New York, Paris, London and Moscow. They have been featured in The New York Times, Boston Globe, L'Express and Martha Stewart Living. Tavormina was the winner of the Grand Prix at the 2010 International Culinaire Photography Festival in Paris. She lives and works in New York City.
