At Our Still Lives Posed
For The Manchester Contemporary 2019, PAPER will present the work of 5 Manchester-based artists: Lisa Denyer, Caitlin Griffiths, David Hancock, Ruby Tingle, and Hannah Wooll. Each artist attempts to disrupt the notion of still life. Lisa Denyer creates mixed-media paintings that toy with the idea of their function as object, shifting between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional, they are neither wholly painting or sculpture. David Hancock's paintings fluctuate between the subject and object. Painting meticulously from a still life set up, the objects within the still life contain their own narrative, and as characters they enact the greek tragedies whilst simultaneously referencing historical works of art. Caitlin Griffiths explores the relationship between reality and individual identity, drawing on photography's means to observe and document place, people and performance. Still Life Art Schrödinger is a series of still lives pairing an unopened box and with an open box. Referencing Schrödinger’s Cat thought experiment, reality is only summoned into existence through the act of observing it. Hannah Wooll employs found images from books and objects found in charity shops. She repurposes these items with her cast of lost girls. Ruby Tingle's recent works blur the line between object and image; the imagined textures of her paper cutouts inform a new three dimensional situation in which the collages now exist-  their landscapes flitting between pictorial space and fragments of mythical skin.
