‘Timeless Instants’ still-life photography on display at Taubman Center
Originally from Kansas City, Tina West discovered photography while studying sculpture.
She sees her photographs more as paintings, and her still-lifes have powerful cast shadows and frequent light play.
Influenced by Gerhardt Richter and surrealism, West’s images communicate a sense of being, connecting not only the objects in the photographs, but also the viewer and the photograph. She draws inspiration from the objects in her vast collection of unique treasures, and she speaks to their unreserved timelessness with maturity and wonder.
Her work is on display now at Michigan Medicine, and all of the images in the exhibit were created using instant film in a 4×5 view camera.
Where: Gifts of Art Gallery, Taubman Health Center North Lobby, floor 1.
When: 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily through June 10
