Still Life by Sam Taylor-Wood

I spent the day with my kids at the North Carolina Museum of Art.  They had (among other things) a special exhibition of still life paintings from Cezanne, Renoir, O’Keefe, etc.  A *lot* of paintings of fruit bowls and baskets.  

Toward the end of the exhibition there was a monitor playing this film.  After viewing it (twice) we went backwards and looked at all those other fruit bowls again.  As you might expect, the film had a dramatic effect on how I saw the other paintings.
