Reframing the Still Life

For hundreds of years artists have considered the beauty of nature and the ordinary objects that inhabit our lives. Today the still life lives on in unexpected ways. Loch Gallery welcomes you to enjoy this exhibition that illustrates various contemporary interpretations of the timeless tradition of still life painting. 

Through this exhibition we are introducing a new gallery artist—Nick Rooney. Rooney obtained his MA in Painting from the University of the Arts London, at the Camberwell College of Arts in London, England. Much of his early career was spent focusing on the craft of oil painting developing a contemporary art practice deeply rooted in art history. Through the genre of still life, Rooney's current studio work and research look at the relationship between the geometric minimalism and the complexity of classical realism.

Artists in this show include John Hall, Bogdan Molea, Nadine Lundhal, Roberto Rosenman, Leon Belsky, John Hansen, Carol Stewart, Mary Pratt and David Milne.
