Closing Event Sat 4th May 12 to 2 pm

Each artist’s work re-examines the narrative behind Surrealist artist Dorothea Tanning’s painting, Some Roses and Their Phantoms.

As contemporary female artists, how do they relate and question as Tanning did our expectations of what a still life painting is, in relation to the domestic and bourgeois ritual of 'table laying’

'Here some roses from a very different garden sit?, lie?, stand?, gasp, dream?, die?  on white linen. They may serve you tea or coffee. As I saw them take shape on the canvas I was amazed by their solemn colors and their quiet mystery that called for – seemed to demand – some sort of phantoms. So I tried to give them their phantoms and their still-lifeness' . Did I succeed? Clearly they are not going to tell me, but the white linen gave me a good feeling as if I had folded it myself and opened it on the table' - Dorothea Tanning
