Driven by her interest in “control, accidents, and contrivance,” Laura Letinsky is best known for her exquisitely composed still life photographs, redolent with ambiguity. Keenly aware of the rich narrative possibilities inherent in still lifes and influenced by 17th-century Dutch still life painting, Letinsky crafts tabletop vignettes that suggest larger narratives, as she explains: “It’s this idea that the narrative has already occurred; the meal has been eaten, the cornucopia has been consumed, something has been consummated, and this is what’s left in the early morning light.” Letinsky holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba, 1986, and MFA from Yale University’s School of Art, 1991, and is now a Professor in the Department of Visual Art at the University of Chicago.
All lectures are open to the public, accessible to all bodies, welcoming to all faiths and backgrounds and a hundred percent free!
