John Scurry has an exhibition of still life paintings on at the Nancy Sever Gallery. Still life still evokes in me fruit and wine bottles on tables. Scurry plays around with the discipline of still life by creating motionless domestic issues from a consumer residential contexts. The objects included are very much more masculine than the traditional objects. A humorous element of the set is the fact that he includes quinces in some of the pictures.
The pictures within the gallery sheet below give you the sense of the set along with Nancy’s great text on the exhibition
