A Stiller Life refers to the still life genre and to the slower pace of life we’ve been living this past year. Many of the works on this page capture subtle moments, from the shadow of a dish rack to light reflecting off a window pane. The works call attention to everyday objects and interior scenes that, in busier times, we may have overlooked, and that now form the daily backdrops of our lives, both on the screen and off. An ikebana arrangement, a lava lamp, an iron, a clock on the wall —the simple images in these works remind us of the many ways we’ve passed the time and come to appreciate a stiller life.
