Sharon Core, ‘1886’, 2011, Yancey Richardson Gallery

About Sharon Core

Though her sumptuous photographs of food and flower still lifes seem, at first, like straightforward visual feasts, Sharon Core’s compositions are the result of a sleight-of-hand wittiness and conceptual rigor. Her photographs are painstaking recreations of still life works by some of the most famous painters of the genre, including 19th-century artist Raphaelle Peale and contemporary artist Wayne Thiebaud. That her photographs are based on photographic reproductions of the paintings she mimics adds a layer of perceptual intrigue to her works.

American, b. 1965, New Orleans, Louisiana
