Still life painting—Adam Pyett

20 May to 16 July 2017

This survey exhibition of works spanning over ten years charts Adam Pyett’s long-standing interest in the still life genre. Mining traditional subjects from leaves and flowers, transparent vessels, and skulls through to those that reflect popular culture such as drink cans and rock t-shirts, still life is the genre through which Pyett explores his primary interest, the subject of painting itself.
