Forget Me Not exhibition

LUMAS Gallery London
57
London, United Kingdom

Still life embodies the Dutch Golden Age, brought about by huge wealth from empire and trade. Floral still lifes displayed this cornucopia and abundance, but the genre’s vanitas paintings also highlight the existential crisis created by excessive material wealth. This timeless genre, with its inexhaustible potential, is still a source of inspiration for artists. With the upcoming Forget Me Not exhibition, LUMAS London explores how contemporary photographers, painters and illustrators interpret nature through still life in order to create new narratives for the 21st century.
