A Still Life

Space 519 Lunchroom with Letinsky-1.jpeg

Canadian contemporary photographer Laura Letinsky is best known for her elegant but slightly off-putting images.  Letinsky’s work is reminiscent of a Dutch Golden Age still-life, often a perfect replication of local produce, but presented as an act of realism - the aftermath of such perfection.

We chose this color photograph as the focal artwork for a Chicago concept store and cafe because of both the inherent subject matter, and the artist’s unique vision. We like that this print, while a true complement to the space and environment in terms of color, brings additional life to this already bustling restaurant.
