Adopting its title from the Dutch still-life paintings of the Seventeenth century, Still Life with Flowers presents artists in contemporary New Zealand, who adopt the centuries old tradition of depicting a floral still life arrangement as the subject of their composition. Though typically rendered hyper-realistically in oil paint throughout the history of art, the featured artists have each turned to a different means of rendering their common subject.
