About The Work

This photograph is from a body of new work by Sharon Core exploring the subject of floral still-life painting. The artistʼs sources range from the style of early Flemish painters, such as Bosschaert and Jan Brueghel, to the Modernists Odilon Redon and Fantin-Latour. The work engages time in both a sense of history and temporality. Flowers are the most temporal of objects: fragile, changeable, and short-lived, a flowerʼs bloom opens, bends, fades and falls according to degrees of light, temperature, water, and weather. As a subject for art, however, flowers have been portrayed for centuries by artists of all stripes and have an established permanence in the lexicon of art history. It is between these polarities of transience and permanence that the current work is situated. With an eye towards the flower in its natural state and as well as the styles of representation that attempt to order, organize, celebrate, and lament a fleeting symbol of beauty throughout history, Core has thoroughly explored the nature of the painted bouquet.
