Vanitas :: Recent Work by Hannah Schindler

May 20, 2010

Opening this Friday is Vanitas, an exhibition of recent photography by Hannah Schindler, a recent graduate of Bard College at Simon’s Rock. Vanitas, inspired by 17th century Dutch still life paintings, uses food to portray death as an inevitable part of life.

“For my series of photographs, I  have attempted to convey aspects of my identity through arrangements of objects and food. The Photographs themselves have evolved to articulate my own personal fascination with life and death. I see these photographs as vanitas images and therefore to be viewed as metaphors. I truly believe it is the viewer who completes the image; I hope that others can find their own meaning within them.”

Please join us for an Opening Reception with the artist on Saturday, June 5th from 4-7.
Hannah Schindler will give an artist’s talk at 6.
