The Small Stage

The Small Stage: Still Life

Presented by Newton Open Studios (, curated by Ellen Fisher.

Five artists explore the still life format, presenting a varied and delightful sampling that challenges preconceived notions of the genre. Kemler’s fruits float and pirouette in space, crowding edge to edge across the image. Doolin’s arrangements will keep you off-balance, with the viewpoint of a Lilliputian looking in along the plane of the table, objects rising like buildings into the distance. Dioguardi’s lush, satisfying use of color and reflection defy the often tiny confines of the images. Dziuk’s photographs explore shadows and layers, unexplained pairings and unanswered questions. Fisher’s images treat discarded objects with tenderness and humor.
