Early American

Still Life with Striped Bass, 2008 © Sharon Core

from Yancey Richardson:

. . . Early American, an exhibition of photographs by Sharon Core that builds on her earlier exploration of the relationship between painting and photography and between originals and appropriation. Based on early 19th century still life painting, in particular the work of Raphaelle Peale, Early American engages aspects of representation, mimesis, cultural memory and history. As Core states “The meaning of the photographs lies in the gaps that are created: the point between painting and photography, paint and light, past and present, authenticity and falsity.”
