Paulette Tavormina: Seizing Beauty

April 23, 2016 - July 10, 2016

This exhibition features Paulette Tavormina’s photographs of still life arrangements which often recall the sumptuous detail of 17th century Old Master still life painters like Francisco de Zurbarán, Adriaen Coorte, and Giovanna Garzoni.

Her meticulously orchestrated and beautifully lit photographs are boldly contemporary in their precision, capturing delphiniums, roses, lemons, figs, beetles, and porcelain bowls.

Tavormina’s photographs are in museum, corporate, and private collections around the globe. She is also an active commercial photographer, photographing artworks for Sotheby’s, collaborating with The Fabulous Beekman Boys on three cookbooks, and contributing to “The New York Times” and “National Geographic” magazine. She has also served as a prop and food stylist for such major Hollywood films as “The Perfect Storm,” “Nixon,” and “The Astronaut’s Wife.”
