quiet life
peter wichman

6 - 30 November 2013

In Peter Wichman's still-life studies everyday objects are used over and over again to insist on their very ordinariness. At the same time, their value is increased by repetition, since repetition invites the viewer to look past the surface at the object's special clarity and appeal.

Their connectedness in clusters begins to reveal more than the individual parts, and when brought together with cut flowers, these objects also hint at meanings to do with the nature of human existence and human needs, inhabiting the ephemeral and the everyday.
