Lush, delicate, and painterly is the work of Sharon Core. Gazing on the series of floral still lives it is no surprise that Core studied painting earning a BFA from the University of Georgia before continuing onto earn her MFA in photography from Yale.

The series 1606-1907 engages, and at times seems to even go as far as to translate, representational painting and photography. The history of the floral still-life painting is directly referenced from the early Flemish painters to Modernists but the work pushes beyond reference effectively engaging the very essence of the subject itself, temporality. The surfaces are fluid, warm, brilliant and dramatic- some frames burst with color, life, and energy while others to cling to the last moments of lasting glory, or even wither on the stem. The drama of life is played out through the historical subject that emerges anew. This show is a must-see.
