Nature Morte - Contemporary Still Life from artist Julia Milton
This exhibition presents the work of emerging artist Julia Milton. Inspired by the symbolic weight of various motifs and metaphors within the history of Still Life, her work investigates issues of globalization and consumerism in food production today. Milton particularly notes how contemporary advertising and marketing portray the abundance of food - including consumer demands, food displays in supermarkets, advertising and consumer driven desire for perfection in our society.
‘The domestic reference to food and table settings has close links to my own life in terms of family management and the private studio space of the kitchen table’
