‘Remember you must die’ (memento mori): still-life artworks are often associated with reminders of the shortness and fragility of life. But the artworks themselves may outlast many human lifetimes. They hang in limbo between brevity and the endless future.
Selected from the Gallery’s three permanent collections, this exhibition presents still lifes in various mediums. As women, traditionally, often had to suspend their fine arts practice or aspiration to fulfil domestic arts like cooking, cleaning and sewing, the exhibition foregrounds still lifes by women artists that reflect on moments and monotonies in their lived experience.
Featured artists include Janet Deboos, Gwyn Hanssen-Pigott, Marian Hosking, Elfrun Lach, Lionel Lindsay, Rosemary Madigan, Margaret Olley, Lloyd Rees, Ellis Rowan and Normana Wight.
The works remind us, we can live more fully through art.

Exhibition on display 20 May – 9 July
